Tacoma tiger cub recovers, back on exhibitMarch 8, 2013 @ 6:30 pm
TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A Malayan tiger cub who had been critically ill has returned to play in his exhibit at the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma.
Zoo officials say the cub named Berani returned to the exhibit Friday.
The News Tribune reports ( http://is.gd/qhDubG) the cub had emergency surgery Feb. 25 after zookeepers noticed he didn't feel well. Veterinarians say his illness likely was a case of enterotoxemia, in which toxins caused by bacteria create an infection.
Zoo officials are still trying to determine what caused the infection.
