(RNN) – The U.S. Border Patrol sees some interesting things while working the dividing line between Texas and Mexico.

On Monday, agents found a 3-to-4-month-old tiger cub stuffed in a black duffel bag.

The baby big cat was abandoned when three people attempting to enter the United States illegally were intercepted at the border and fled back to Mexico.

The cub has been turned over to the Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville.
