A shocking discovery at the US-Mexico border will have you screaming “BUILD THE WALL!” This is yet another example of the open border and what’s being brought across it.
BORDER PATROL OFFICERS were shocked after discovering a sedated live baby tiger inside an abandoned duffel bag on the US-Mexico border. Officials say the cub had been heavily sedated and was very dehydrated when they found it. The cub is lucky to be alive after being stuffed into a duffel bag by three illegals who attempted to bring it over the border. If this doesn’t show just how wide open our border is then nothing will.
The exotic animal smuggling trade probably loves our open border and has used it to transfer animals to the US many times. There was another case from August of last year where a teen tried to smuggle a Bengal tiger cub across the border (see below). Who knows where this tiger came from. It’s interesting that animal rights activists like PETA are so silent on this clear case of animal abuse.
According to Fox 8, the baby tiger was discovered after a suspicious bag was spotted along America’s border with Mexico.
Border patrol officers stumbled across the abandoned black duffel bag on Monday and were left horrified by its contents.
While people trafficking and drug smuggling are rife along the US-Mexico border, animal smuggling is rare.
According to Fox 8, the agents saw three people attempting to enter the United States illegally, through Brownsville, Texas.
When they were spotted, the men dropped the bag and apparently fled back to Mexico.
When agents approached the bag and carefully opened it, they were shocked to find the unconscious male tiger cub stuffed inside.
In a Facebook post alongside a picture of the now healthy cub, the Gladys Porter Zoo said:
“The tiger cub found in a duffel bag at the border is under the care of our veterinary staff.
“Despite him being brought to us in a critical condition, our veterinary team acted quickly to stabilize him and he is now doing very well.
“He is thought to be around 2 months of age.
“The way he responds to humans leads us to believe that he has been hand-raised up until this point.
“The next step will be to find him a more permanent home.”
The discovery comes just weeks after President Trump ordered the deployment of National Guard troops along the Mexican border.
ANOTHER CASE FROM AUGUST OF LAST YEAR:
FOX 8 reports:
SAN DIEGO – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers rescued a Bengal tiger cub from a teenager who attempted to bring it into San Diego from Mexico Wednesday morning.
An 18-year-old Perris man pulled up to the Otay Mesa Port of Entry Wednesday around 1:30 a.m. in a 2017 Chevy Camaro, with a 21-year-old man in the passenger seat, CPB official reported. They told an officer they had nothing to declare from Mexico, authorities said. Due to issues with the vehicle identification number, the vehicle was referred to a secondary inspection area.
CBP officers discovered a baby tiger lying on the floor of the front passenger side. The passenger told inspectors the animal was “just a cat,” according to an affidavit filed by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Special Agent Eduardo Nieves.
Officers removed the cub and placed it in an animal crate.
BUILD THE WALL!
