Den mystiske boksen stod på flyplassen i syv dager, før noen åpnet den og fikk seg et sjokk.


En umerket eske, som ikke var høyere enn 40 cm, stod fast en hel uke på flyplassen i Beirut i Libanon før noen åpnet den – og ble sjokkert da de så hva de fant i den.

Inni esken lå det tre utrydningstruede Sibirske tigere. De var dehydrert og utsultet, og dekket i urin og avføring. Kroppene deres var dekket av hundrevis av maggot.

«Det var ingenting som indikerte at esken inneholdt tigere, eller i det hele tatt levende dyr, og det stod ikke hvem som var avsenderen eller hvor esken skulle sendes», skriver dyreorganisasjonen Animals Lebanon.

Det viste seg etterhvert at tigerungene skulle fraktes fra Nikolaev Zoo i Ukraina til Samer al-Husainawi Zoo i Damaskus. De ble imidlertid altså stående fast i Libanon.

Synet som møtte dem som åpnet esken, viser hvor dårlig eksotiske dyr blir behandlet. Animals Lebanon konfiskerte tigerne ettersom dette var for dyreplageri å regne. Nå er heldigvis tigerungene trygge, og blir sterkere for hver dag som går.

«Store kattedyr som dette kan være verdt tusenvis av dollar på det svarte markedet. Eieren kjemper for å få dem tilbake», skriver Animals Lebanon, «Og vi sloss for tigerne.»

Nå er det Animals Lebanon som tar seg av tigerungene, og de er trygge. Forhåpentligvis får ikke eierne tigerne tilbake, og de kan leve et bedre liv enn hva de ville fått i en dyrehage.



Her er en video om historien deres – DEL gjerne om du er enig i at dyr overhodet ikke skal behandles på denne måten!

STOP BABY TIGERS FROM ENDING UP IN THE BLACK MARKET!

OUTRAGED?!?! SHARE this terrible story and help protect these three Siberian tigers.

Stuck for seven days covered in their own urine and feces in a tiny maggot infested crate. They were shoved in a crate that was only 42 centimeters high while the animals were about 60 centimeters tall. These tigers were saved from further cruel suffering and possibly death by an order of a judge.

They arrived a week earlier on a flight from Ukraine and were supposedly destined to a zoo in Syria.




Nothing indicated that the box contained tigers or even live animals, and there were no details of a shipper or receiver. Other than an Air Waybill number, the box was completely unmarked…

These four month old tigers are now in Animals Lebanon care. A specialized wildlife vet was flown in to give them all a medical examination. Their paw pads were raw and red from being covered in urine, and were their back legs and thighs. They had not received the proper vaccinations so all three were vaccinated. Only one tiger was found to have a microchip, though documents state that all three should have been microchipped.

They are improving – but they are still at risk! Big cats can be worth tens of thousands of dollars on the black market. The owner is fighting to get them back, and we are fighting for the tigers and rule of law.

Siberian tigers are protected under the Convention on International Tarde of Endangered Species (CITES). They can only be traded under very specific circumstances, and only when a number of other conditions are met.

Officials have already stated that the transport conditions do not meet the regulations of CITES or IATA Live Animal Regulations. The owner, exporter and shipper is one man listed as 'Private Entrepreneur'…

Animals Lebanon submitted today our case asking for the animals not just to be seized, but to be permanently confiscated.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Judge of Urgent Matters and Customs have all made the right decisions. Now they need a decision to permanently protect them and prevent them from becoming part of the multibillion dollar wildlife trafficking industry!
