A 6-month-old, 74-pound male tiger cub at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Washington state is in poor but stable condition after suffering respiratory distress after surgery. Veterinarians performed surgery and evaluated the cub's gastrointestinal tract after keepers noticed he wasn't eating and had a fever. "There was no blockage, but his gastrointestinal tract appears to be very, very irritated," said zoo veterinarian Karen Wolf.
