DC Tiger Cub Bonds With New Buddy at San Diego Zoo

A 9-week-old Sumatran tiger cub left the Smithsonian National Zoo Monday for his new home at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The cub, born on July 11, was rejected by its mother.

Keepers decided to transfer the cub to San Diego, where it could bond with another tiger cub – a 7-week-old Bengal tiger cub confiscated at the U.S.-Mexico border during an alleged smuggling attempt.

The cubs met for the first time Monday and, according to Safari Park officials, took to each other immediately, wrestling and jumping together.
