A baby tiger, that had been drugged, was found in a woman’s piece of luggage. She was flying to Iran from Bangkok and put the drugged baby tiger in the suitcase filled with toy tigers.
Thank goodness her bag was too heavy for the airplanes weight constrictions, so airport officials put the bag under an x-ray machine, and that’s how they fortunately found the 3 month old baby tiger.
The tiger cub is worth a lot of money in Iran where the woman was traveling. Apparently some people there like to have “exotic” pets and this cub could have made this woman about “$3,200” richer.
The woman, of course denied the bag was hers. She claimed someone else asked her to carry it for them.
The tiger cub is safe with wild life handlers, and the woman is going to jail
