On Monday, border patrol spotted three people attempting to cross the Rio Grande near Brownsville. Once spotted, the smugglers fled back to Mexico, leaving behind a large duffel bag.

Authorities discovered the bag contained a live tiger cub. When they opened the bag, officials say the tiger was calm, possibly sedated. The male cub is estimated to be somewhere between three or four-months-old, and has since been moved to the Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville.
