The only uplifting part of the story is that they all didn't die.

So happy that these 2 were rescued and I'm glad they're going to be rehabilitated. I wonder if there's any chance for #4??

AT least 2 of the cubs were rescued alive. Hopefully, they will survive, be returned to the wild, and will never be seen by another human again for thier own safety.

Noted. Thank heavens that 2 of the cubs are still thriving and in time may be released back into the wild. The Bengal Tiger is such a beautiful tiger.

Wow! I am so impressed! We often see villigers go after tigers for the kill to make medicine from their bones, salve called 'tiger balm' for achey, sore, muscles but rarely do we see videos like this. I'm so sorry one of the cubs gave up. I'm so happy to know the two will evetnually be released back into the wild. I only wish Tony had had the same blessings bestowed upon him.

Noted- thanks- so happy to hear they will be rehabilitated and sent back to the wild rather than being sold to a zoo for a lifetime in captivity.

Yay! It was a rescue and not a murder scene. It sounds like all the right things are being done for these beautiful tigers. Take note CA DFG! They would have killed them like they did 2 mountain lion cubs.
Thanks Cher!

Very sad that there were animal deaths.
Why can't all humans treat all animals with respect?
