A Tiger in the Tank?


Disturbing news that a sedated tiger cub was reportedly posted in a plastic box from one part of Mexico to another (https://nypost.com/2018/02/08/someone-tried-to-express-mail-a-tiger-cub/). Tigers are apparently status pets in parts of that country. The cub was discovered by a sniffer dog and survived being only somewhat dehydrated but this technique is said to be used by many people attempting to make money from endangered animals. Rare tortoises have been dispatched en masse by mail often with fatal consequences.
