INDIANAPOLIS — Officials at the Indianapolis Zoo announced Friday the death of a tiger cub.
In a social media post, the zoo said "Nicolas" was euthanized to end his suffering.
Nicholas and his brother, Roman, had a liver defect that was likely present a birth or acquired soon after, according to a post on Facebook. Roman died earlier this year.
A third cub, Helina, is undergoing treatment for the same condition and is being closely monitored by veterinary staff.
