Delhi Zoo loses one jaguar cub
Bindu Shajan Perappadan
NEW DELHI: Delhi Zoo lost one of its two jaguar cubs this past week. Born on April 25, the cubs were discarded by their natural mother and were being hand-reared. They were the fifth set of jaguar cubs to be hand-reared at the zoo.
According to the zoo authorities, they lost one of the cubs due to weakness and infection that had set in.
However, the other cub — still in the zoo hospital under observation — is doing well.
The cub will stay in the hospital for the next six months before it is shifted to an enclosure.
"Earlier we had sought the help of a surrogate bitch from non-government organisation "Friendicoes" for the cubs. The mother had discarded the cubs because of which we had to take the help of a surrogate mother,” said a zoo official.
