It’s a fact of life that no one likes rejection. But can you imagine your own mother turning her back on you? Well, that was the reality for a little tiger cub named Zoya. Yes, following a series of tragic events, Zoya’s mom refused to nurse her. And so zookeepers had to devise a special plan to help get the abandoned cub adopted.
Zoya the Siberian tiger cub had a tough start to life. In July 2017 she was born at Philadelphia Zoo on what became a very sad day. You see, Zoya came into this world with four other siblings, but by an unfortunate twist of fate she turned out to be the litter’s sole survivor.
