Liger Cubs in Taiwan (Triplet Liger Cubs)


A tigress in Taiwan has given birth to three liger cubs. However, one of the cubs initially died because of poor health, and there were only two liger cubs left. This was the first ever liger experiment in the Taiwan. The mother of these liger cubs was a tigress of Bengal. Their father was the male African lion.

In Taiwan tigers and lions are considered as protected and endangered animals. They are protected and endangered because they are near to extinct. Experts think that it is highly unnecessary to experiment with such animals especially when they are already near to extinct. As a result, it was held that the zoo keeper was responsible for an illegal deed by allowing the mating of the tiger and lion and having ligers as birth. The zoo keeper's name was Huang Kuo-nan.

He was fined 1500 US dollars. In some reports it is mentioned he is fined 50,000 US dollars. The authorities have also seized the liger cubs from the zoo. In other words, they have seized the liger cubs from the tigress. It looks like a big shame, but chances are they would have seized it if the tigress had ignored the cubs. The mortality rates of the tiger cubs are also very higher as well. Typically that is why the liger cubs also die as well with faster rates at the time of the birth.

According to the recent reports as of 2012, the remaining surviving liger cub in Taiwan was still alive. However, this liger had one immovable and numb leg. All the three ligers which were born were full of deformities. This arises a very big question, should ligers be bred? This example seems to be a very big challenge for the ligers existence in the future.

Liger in Taiwan had Deformities. It had a lot of physical problems.
This is the remaining surviving liger of the three triplet ligers. This liger had a lot of deformities when it was born. It will have to take these deformities with itself throughout its life. This is not a good example to share about ligers. You can see that one of its leg is completely paralyzed. This picture belongs to
