A four-month-old Bengal tiger rescued by U.S. Border Patrol agents in Laredo has a new home in North Texas.

The tiger, named Smuggler, now makes his home at In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Education Center in the Collin County town of Wylie.

Border Patrol agents rescued the tiger cub when alleged drug smugglers threw his crate onto the US side of the border to divert agents' attention, according to an In-Sync press release.
 
When Smuggler was found, had been declawed, neutered, but was in reasonably good health. He was introduced to the Tiger Country Playground and In-Sync reports he had a great time.

He's now one of 45 exotic cats, including rare white lions, a white tiger, as well as leopards, cougars and a lynx, calling In-Sync home.

The sanctuary offers tours to the public on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
