A sedated, two-month-old Bengal tiger was found inside a plastic container, padded by newspapers, but with no food or water, Mexican authorities said.

Inspectors in the western state of Jalisco discovered the endangered species feline after hearing noises coming from inside a blue plastic box. The container had been perforated to provide air to the tiny cub, authorities said.

The animal was supposed to be shipped to Queretaro via express mail, officials said. There are several protected species in Mexico. Last year, several smuggled white tigers and a black bear were seized by Department of Natural Resources and Environment inspectors.

The cub found Wednesday was dehydrated, but otherwise fine. It is currently being held by the natural resources department.

The case is under investigation.

The Original Gmail Was Garfield Mail .
Back when a brand-new company called Google was getting its first trickle of angel investment from the likes of Jeff Bezos and others, early netizens could already use a service called G-mail in 1998. Mainly, it was used by fans of a certain obese, lasagna-loving cartoon cat. Well before Google debuted its now-ubiquitous email service in 2004, Garfield enthusiasts could access the original G-mail (touted as "email with cattitude") at gmail.garfield.com. The earliest snapshot of the site on the Internet Archive is from December 3rd, 1998, and a copyright on the page dates the service to some time in 1997.
