U.S. Zoo Unveils New Amur Tiger Cub To Public

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Officials at a Pennsylvania zoo are showing off their new Amur tiger cub to the public, though the 6-week-old cat can only be seen on a video monitor for now.

Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium Zoo officials say the cat weighs about 9 pounds ( 4 kilograms). They’re slowly introducing him to meat, though it will be a while before he’s weaned from his mother.

The cub is still too small to display in the zoo’s outside yard, so visitors will settle for viewing him on a video monitor.
