The 18-year-old man who smuggled the animal said he bought the Bengal tiger for $300 on the street of Tijuana.

Now, the little cub has a new lease on life. In the above video, the baby tiger shows that it is adapting to its new home, drinking milk from a bottle, enjoying belly rubs and even shows some adorable smiles for the camera.
