Tiger cub found in woman's luggage

A two-month-old tiger cub found sedated and hidden among toys in a woman's luggage at Bangkok airport has been sent to a wildlife conservation centre.

The BBC reports the cub was discovered on Friday after a Thai woman checked in and her bag was sent for a routine x-ray because it was overweight.

A toy tiger was also placed in the suitcase in an apparent ploy to fool any inspection.
