The Tulsa Zoo received some surprise guests this week. Two tiger cubs and two adult clouded leopards were rescued in a sting operation by the US Fish and Wildlife Service.

The Tulsa Zoo agreed to hold these wild animals until a permanent home could be found for them. Zoo officials say the care and handling of wild and exotic cats should be left to trained professionals.

The Tulsa Zoo says they have no plans to put the animals on display.

They are working with the American Zoo and Aquarium Association to find them a good home.
