Tiger confiscated from Camorra transferred to temporary home


Rome, April 15 - A tiger that has become the
symbol of the Naples zoo after she was confiscated from the
local Camorra mafia in the 1990s was transferred to a temporary
home while the structure is converted into a reserve after going
belly up last March.
Cleo, the 16-year old tiger, will be a guest at an animal
protection center near Bologna run by the Italian Forest Corps
while the Naples zoo is transformed into an education and
biodiversity park following guidelines defined by the
International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
The zoo mascot made the headlines after she was
confiscated from local Camorra members who would walk the tiger
cub on a leash in the town of Castello di Cisterna near Naples
as a status symbol and to intimidate rival clans.
