Tiger Cubs Thriving at Potter Park Zoo

Three tiger cubs were born at Potter Park Zoo in Lansing in mid September. Just two days after birth, tests showed that the cubs had pneumonia. Since that time the cubs were held in a contained area away from their mother and father to be attended to by the veterinary staff of the zoo. The news of the births was just recently released after the cubs had proven to be making a successful comeback. The cubs were named Savelii, Kira, and Ameliya, all female Amur Tigers.
