Kenobi was found by border patrol agents on 4/30/18, being smuggled across the border in a duffel bag by three men, most likely to be sold to the highest bidder. When they caught wind of the border patrol agents, the men abandoned the duffel bag with its precious cargo and crossed the border back into Mexico. The cub was found by agents and transported to the Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, where he was temporarily housed for several months. In-Sync is proud to be able to provide the cub with his forever home. Here he will have access to the very best in nutrition, veterinary care, enrichment, love and friends. As Kenobi already served his mandatory quarantine period at the zoo, Kenobi and Kylo Ren were carefully and slowly introduced shortly after Kenobi’s arrival at In-Sync. Having another cub to play, interact, learn and nap with stimulates healthy growth and development, just as it would in the wild.
