Rescued tiger cub to be named 'Himmel'

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A rescued tiger cub at a local animal sanctuary now has a new name.

The sanctuary held a contest online to name the little guy at Lions, Tigers and Bears in Alpine.

The CBS News 8 team is glad to announce that the winning name is 'Himmel', after CBS News 8's late Larry Himmel, who was a longtime supporter of the sanctuary.

The cub was found wandering the streets of Hemet all by itself last month. It's now doing well under the care of Lions,Tigers and Bears.
