Good News from Peshawar Zoo a Bengal tigress has given birth to two healthy cubs on Monday.

The zoo administration said the gender of the cubs could not be determined for 15 days, however both are said to be healthy.

The administration of the zoo is providing extra care to the cubs of a Bengal Tigress . Meanwhile, citizens also thronged the zoo to catch a glimpse of the cubs.

Social media also expressed joy over the birth of cubs, and also demanded the administration to take effective measures for the care of the cubs.

Last month a number of people in Peshawar filed a joint petition at the Peshawar High Court against the negligence of the city’s zoo administration, which they claimed has resulted in the deaths of multiple animals.

The petitioners requested that the condition of the zoo should be upgraded as per international standards and animals not suited to the climate of Peshawar should be shifted to a sanctuary or some other zoo in Pakistan.

They pointed out that those animals not suited to the city’s environment should be prohibited from being brought to the zoo at all. The petition was filed through Advocate Ali Gohar.

According to a report, in the last nine months, more than 18 animals have died at the zoo. These animals include wild cats, zebras, wild bears, deer, and cheetah.

Pakistan Wildlife Foundation Vice Chairperson Safwan Ahmed said that the design of the Peshawar zoo is not suited for the animals kept there and criticized the structure of its cages. “The caretakers of the animals, too, have not been trained properly,” he claimed.
