The tiger ‘gift’ that horrified Polish rescuers

There are suspicions that the rescued tigers were destined to be used in Asian medicine
BBC:

Nine emaciated and distressed tigers transported from Italy to the Poland-Belarus border are safe now, but the case exposed a cruel, shadowy trade in exotic animals destined for Asia.

The discovery last October shocked Ewa Zgrabczynska, director of Poznan Zoo in Poland, which is looking after four of them.

The other five were taken in by an animal welfare centre called Primadomus, near Alicante in southern Spain.

The tigers were starving, thirsty and filthy after a 2,000km (1,243-mile) road journey to Belarus. A tenth one did not survive.

The survival of the other nine was just good luck: the Belarus border guards were suspicious about the animal transporter's paperwork and refused to let it through.

The animal transport lorry, driven by two Italians, was totally unsuited for the tigers crammed in there: it was the type used for carrying horses or cattle.
