Sumatran tiger born at Prague Zoo

A Sumatran tiger has been born at Prague Zoo, according to a statement issued by the zoo on Wednesday. The cub, which was born at the end of July, is doing well, officials said. Members of the public will be able to get their first glimpse of the rare animal when it is placed in a tiger run in November. Renovation work on the zoo’s big cats pavilion, which was damaged by flooding in June, was postponed because of the birth.
