Authorities at Bangkok's international airport found a tiger cub that had been drugged and hidden among stuffed toy tigers in the suitcase of a woman flying from Thailand to Iran, an official said on Friday.

The woman, a Thai national, had checked in for her flight and her oversized bag was sent for an X-ray which showed what appeared to be a live animal inside, according to a wildlife trade monitoring group.

The woman was arrested, the cub sent to a conservation centre.
