The first ever liger in China was born during the year 2002. But that liger immediately died after its birth.

One of the Chinese expert is of the opinion that it was very difficult for him to raise the liger cubs. Many of the liger cubs have already died before and these ligers should have to be on a very controlled diet before they would be able to become strong enough.

On the other hand some findings suggest that cross breeding in between tiger and lion is dangerous for the tigress. Through the findings we can see that it may not be correct as born ligers have died, but no case of tigress death have been reported while giving birth to the liger cubs.
