Three Siberian tiger fledglings were being carried via plane from Nikolaev Zoo in Ukraine to a zoo in Syria. During this time, they were at Beirut air terminal for seven days, stuck in a modest box that was just 42 centimeters high, while the whelps were 60 centimeters tall. This implied they had little room and were compelled to slouch over. They were likewise without sustenance or water for an entire week.Inside the container, they were sitting in their own pee and defecation among minor worms.
The container was totally plain, did not demonstrate that it was holding live creatures, and had no subtleties of a shipper or collector. Fortunately, following seven days inside this sickening carton, they were at long last safeguarded and are currently being thought about by Animal’s Lebanon. Poor people whelps were in a bad way. The base of their paws was incredibly red and crude from remaining in their pee for so long.A specific untamed life vet came to play out a test on them and got them all inoculated and microchipped. The felines were improving, yet they were not out of the forested areas at this time.
Since huge felines merit a pretty penny on the bootleg market, their proprietor was battling to get them back. Simultaneously, Animal’s Lebanon presented their case, requesting the tigers to be seized, yet to be forever appropriated from the first owner.According to Animal’s Lebanon, Siberian tigers are secured under the Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species.
They can only be traded under specific circumstances and only if certain conditions are met. The transport conditions of these three cubs did not meet these regulations.While they waited for a decision, the cubs were being well-taken care of at Animal’s Lebanon, enjoying their big enclosure, tons of food, and of course, lots of love. They never have to worry about being treated poorly ever again. And best of all, the Ministry of Agriculture has since made a final decision, and the three tiger cubs will not be returned to their owner and will remain in the care of Animal’s Lebanon!
