As Country Celebrated Its 72nd Independence Day, Delhi Zoo Gets Tiger Cubs From ‘Mixed’ Pair

As the country celebrated its 72nd Independence Day, Delhi zoo had an added reason to cheer on Wednesday morning, with the birth of two tiger cubs — 27 years since the zoo last welcomed offsprings from a ‘mixed’ pair.

The cubs were the result of mating between a unique couple — three-year-old white tigress Nirbhaya and five-year-old Royal Bengal tiger Karan. “This has brought added cheer to the zoo. The white tigress had been feeling uneasy for the last one week and finally delivered two cubs early Wednesday,” said Renu Singh, director, Delhi zoo.
