NEW DELHI, Aug 3, Reuter: A rare white tiger cub was born yesterday in a circus camping in a small town in the central Indian State of Madhya Pradesh, the United News of India said.

The cub was one of a litter of three delivered by the tigress Kammo when the Asian circus stopped in Jabalpur, UNI said.

White Tigers are mutations of the Panthera tigris tiger, an Indian species. No white tigers have been sighted in the wild and there are only about 300 of them in existence.
