Tiger Cub Rescued at Texas Border Comes to In-Sync Exotics
Wylie, TX, July 25, 2018 - A tiger cub found by border patrol agents on April 30th is finally coming to his forever home this Friday. The male cub was being smuggled across the border in a black duffel bag by three men, most likely with the intent of selling him to the highest bidder. When they caught wind of border patrol agents in nearby Brownsville, they abandoned the duffel bag with its precious cargo and crossed the border back into Mexico. The tiger cub was found by agents and transported to Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville to stabilize him and provide him a temporary home.
In-Sync Exotics is proud to be able to provide the cub, now named Kenobi, a permanent home. Here he will have access to the very best in nutrition, veterinary care, enrichment, and friends.
As you may remember, on March 6th a white tiger cub was born at In-Sync Exotics to recently rescued white tigers Assad and Zahra. The cub, named Kylo Ren, had to be hand-raised after Zahra failed to exhibit the necessary instincts to care for the cub on her own.
As Kenobi served his mandatory quarantine period at the zoo, the two cubs will be introduced shortly after Kenobi's arrival. Having another cub to play, interact, learn, and nap with stimulates healthy growth and development, just as it would in the wild.
