Smuggled tiger is rescued from suitcase

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

This tiger cub was found trapped in a suitcase as smugglers tried to take it from Bangkok Airport in Thailand.

The cub was given drugs to go to sleep so it wouldn't make a noise.

When airport workers X-rayed the suitcase they saw the animal and rescued it.

It's now being cared for at a rescue centre in Bangkok.
