Staff at Prague Zoo have been forced to put down a rare Sumatran tiger born there in July. Vets had discovered that the animal, which had first been presented to the public at Christmas, had a form of hereditary kidney disease. The male tiger cub was put down two weeks ago but the zoo did not announce the news on its website until Tuesday. Sumatran tigers are seriously endangered; there are around 400 at a reservation in Indonesia and about 100 in European zoos.
