ALPINE, Calif. (KGTV) – The furry, cuddly tiger-cub, Moka, rescued last Summer in Otay Mesa, has found a permanent home in Alpine, California.

Previously held at San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Moka resided with another tiger cub named Rakan.

Rakan, was born at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and brought to San Diego because his mother was unable to care for him properly, making quick friends with Moka.

The two cubs have been residing together at the Tull Family Tiger Trail exhibit at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

Lions, Tigers, and Bears sanctuary is Moka's new home, where he will live among other big cats and wildlife.

Rakan will remain at the Safari Park.
