Abandoned white tiger cub found in bin outside Attica Zoological Park
The cat was found paralyzed, in bad condition and is being treated at the Attica Park Zoo (outside Athens) clinic, where it is being treated to this day.
According to the experts, the unfortunate animal is only 4 months old and as the director of the Attica Zoological Park, Jean-Jacques Lesueur explains.
It is obviously the act of an dispicious person, who after illegally acquiring the white tabby, due to his disability, decided to get rid of it, in this way.
More specifically, Greece's leading animal park on Wednesday said it had recovered a rare white tiger cub found abandoned on a nearby street earlier this week.
Attica Zoological Park said the 4-month-old female cub, which was found beneath a garbage bin near the premises, was paralysed from the waist down.
"No one knows where it came from or how it got here," park founder Jean Jacques Lesueur said, adding that the feline was likely abandoned on Monday.
"It's in terrible condition," he said.
Conservation group World Wildlife Fund (WWF) describes white tigers as "a genetic anomaly," with none known to exist in the wild.
They are often the result of inbreeding, exposing them to a host of health problems at birth.
The park says it hosts more than 2,000 animals from 290 different species.
