SHARE CAPTION ONLY: NEW TIGER CUB IN BEIJING

Manchurian tiger Li Da protects her cub at Beijing's zoo Tuesday. The unnamed cub is the 117th Manchurian tiger born at the zoo since 1958 in a bid to save the animal from extinction. The tigers are a favorite target of poachers seeking to cash in on tiger parts for medicine and aphrodisiacs.
