Dead tiger cubs found in zoo's fridge
by UPI

YICHANG, China -- After finding the remains of two stillborn tiger cubs, China's Yichang Forestry Bureau warned a zoo it had better shape up or else.

The tigers were found in a refrigerator in the ticket office of the Three Gorges Forest Wild Animal World, a zoo in central China's Hubei Province, where another tiger was found dead just four days earlier, the Xinhua News Agency reported Monday.

Zoo spokesman Cao Guangyi said that a female Bengal tiger gave birth to the stillborn cubs on Nov. 28 and the zookeepers put the remains in a refrigerator for better preservation.

Cao said the zoo should have reported the deaths to the bureau and then disposed of the bodies in accordance with the bureau's decision.

"The bureau has ordered the zoo to boost its management and ensure that staff understand the laws and regulations on wildlife protection," he added.
