Three Siberian tiger cubs were being smuggled by plane from Nikolaev Zoo in Ukraine to a zoo in Syria.
During this time, they were at Beirut airport for seven days, stuck in a tiny crate that was only 42 centimeters high, while the cubs were 60 centimeters tall. This meant that they had little room and were forced to hunch over. They were also without food or water for a whole week.
Inside the crate, they were sitting in their own urine and feces amongst tiny maggots. The box was completely unmarked, did not indicate that it was holding live animals, and had no details of a shipper or receiver.
Thankfully, after seven days inside this disgusting crate, they were finally rescued and are now being cared for by Animal’s Lebanon. The poor cubs were in horrible shape. The bottom of their paws was extremely red and raw from standing in their urine for so long.
A specialized wildlife vet came to perform an exam on them and got them all vaccinated and microchipped. The cats were improving, but they were not out of the woods just yet.
Because big cats are worth a pretty penny on the black market, their owner was fighting to get them back. At the same time, Animal’s Lebanon submitted their case, asking for the tigers not just to be seized, but to be permanently confiscated from the original owner.
According to Animal’s Lebanon, Siberian tigers are protected under the Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species. They can only be traded under specific circumstances and only if certain conditions are met. The transport conditions of these three cubs did not meet these regulations.
While they waited for a decision, the cubs were being well-taken care of at Animal’s Lebanon, enjoying their big enclosure, tons of food, and of course, lots of love. They never have to worry about being treated poorly ever again.
And best of all, the Ministry of Agriculture has since made a final decision, and the three tiger cubs will not be returned to their owner and will remain in the care of Animal’s Lebanon!
Watch them in their new life where they are finally happy and safe in the video below:

People often don’t think of the consequences of littering and the effects it has on wildlife. It’s also possible that this creature in the video below got into someone’s trash to get to this can, but you can also help prevent this by smashing all cans before throwing them away. Either way, this little fella needed some help, and thankfully his hero wasn’t too far away.
When this man heard some terrifying screams coming from his own backyard, he had to go investigate. What he found was a tiny creature with a can stuck on its head. He carefully pulled the can off, and the sweetest little face stared back at him.
The tiny fox cub didn’t run away in fear or even go into defense mode. He stuck around as if to thank the man for saving him. It’s the most adorable thing, and you have to see it with your own eyes.

We all react in our own special ways when things don’t go as planned. Some of us get all sad, mopey, whereas others retreat and keep busy by moving on to something else. Then there’s always a few individuals who throw epic temper tantrums that make everyone around them question their sanity, they’re the ones who scream and yell a lot. Just as we humans all have different ways of showing disappointment, so do our four-legged best friends!
The reactions that dogs have to not getting what they want are equally as complex as any persons, it’s just that they’re so much more adorable! When a dog throws a hissy fit or acts irrational because it doesn’t get its way, that’s way more acceptable than when any adult, or person over the age of 10, throws a tantrum.
Case in point: the adorable dog in this video. Sadie is the good looking pup in the Vine clip and when it starts out she has just apparently been denied something. Maybe it was a toy, or a treat, or a nice long walk, it’s not clear and we’re not told what. What is clear is that she’s definitely not happy about it!
Sadie makes her disappointment known to all by groaning aloud and throwing a fit in the most literal sense of the term! She turns from the camera, takes a step, and then throws herself on the floor like a big furry rag-doll. It’s so over the top and unnecessary that it only makes it all the more hilarious and entertaining to watch! However, one person who is not so impressed is Sadie’s owner, Ashlyn Skaggs, who posted the video short. She can be heard in the background telling her dog “Sadie, nobody cares.” Her lack of enthusiasm towards her dogs reaction is like many a parent’s to their kid’s tantrums, they get so used to it that after awhile they pay it no mind!
