Two Amur Tiger cubs were born June 17, after an approximately 105 day gestation period. After observing the mother and cubs overnight, Zoo staff decided to pull the cubs for hand raising because the mother was not showing the quality of maternal care that staff felt she needed to successfully raise the cubs. Only one cub – and the second born, survived the critical first few days. Approximately two thirds of Amur Tiger cubs survive the first 30 days. The female cub will remain off exhibit while Zoo staff cares for her.
