The Morning Brew: Tiger cubs venture outside

It's Friday, and fall has sprung. Buuuurrrrrr.

Tiger cubs make their first foray outside

The Oklahoma City Zoo is awash with tiger cubs. Four, actually. Three Sumatran tigers were born in Oklahoma City last summer. A Siberian tiger was added not long after from the Philadelphia Zoo because its mother rejected it.

The growling little fur balls are getting bigger. This week they made one of their first forays outside after spending much of the last couple of months in a den with their mom.

Eko, Ramah, Gusti and Zoya have their own tiger cam where they can be seen hanging out with mom Lola inside a den at the zoo. But Thursday was their first public appearance outside.
