Animal Haven Zoo's tiger cub passed around at local elementary and high school


Public photos and screenshots from Facebook posts regarding the cub brought to school


UPDATE on the tiger cub at Animal Haven Zoo (AHZ). The cub is still alive and on May 20 an AHZ employee took the 3-week-old cub to the Weyauwega Fremont School District and allowed students from the elementary school and high school to pet the cub and take photos with it. In one photo shared publicly, more than a dozen elementary-age children are lined up to pet the cub, including several students who are not wearing masks.
