Miller Park Zoo welcomes newest addition

BLOOMINGTON - Bloomington's Miller Park Zoo has welcomed its newest addition; a 10-year-old Sumatran tiger named Heran.

Officials say Heran arrived at the central Illinois zoo on April 18, and is on loan from the Los Angeles Zoo.  Miller Park Zoo Superintendent Jay Tetzloff says there was no charge to bring Heran to central Illinois.

Sumatran tigers are classified as critically endangered, and are the smallest members of the tiger subspecies.
