(Newser) – On the list of "Things You Don't Expect to Find Roaming Around a California Neighborhood," tiger cub is probably pretty near the top. Yet that is exactly what one woman in Hemet found yesterday, CBS Los Angeles reports. She brought the 3-month-old, 25-pound Bengal-Siberian tiger to a local humane society, and from there he was taken to an exotic animal sanctuary that is already home to eight adult tigers. The baby was found declawed and needing surgery for an abdominal hernia, but "he's in good condition, in good spirits," an expert at the sanctuary tells NBC Los Angeles. The state Department of Fish and Wildlife will ultimately decide where the tiger will go after treatment.
