WATCH: Tiger gives birth to adorable cubs at UK wildlife park

This is the enchanting moment a tiger gave birth to her cubs at Yorkshire Wildlife Park last month.

The CCTV footage shows four-year-old mother Tschuna giving birth to the cubs before cleaning and feeding her new offspring.

Staff who at the reserve in Doncaster watched the wonderful moment said Tschuna had hidden herself away in the peace and quiet of the cubbing den.

Kim Wilkins, carnivore team leader at the park, added: “It was a very special moment and an incredible privilege.

“It was so heart-warming to see how Tschuna took to motherhood and how natural the new family is.

“Both the birth and her bonding to the cubs was all captured – it is truly enchanting footage and I am glad that we are able to share it with everyone.”

Tschuna moved to Dudley Zoo in the West Midlands after she was rejected by her own mother at birth at Wuppertal Zoo in Germany.

The cubs will not been seen by visitors to the park for some weeks but further footage will be released as the tigers grow.

Numbers of Amur tigers have reduced to around 450 in their native Russian Far East due to poaching and disappearing habitat.

The Yorkshire Wildlife Park Foundation raises money at the park to help big cats in the wild by supporting the Amur Leopard and Tiger Alliance.
