Sedated tiger cub recovers after luggage ordeal

A two-month-old tiger cub found sedated and hidden among stuffed toy tigers in a woman's luggage at Bangkok's airport has been sent to a wildlife conservation centre.

Authorities discovered the cub after the woman, a Thai national, checked in and her bag was sent for a routine x-ray because it was overweight.

A toy tiger was also placed in the suitcase in an apparent ploy to fool any inspection.
