MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Officials with the Minnesota Zoo say their newest female Amur tiger cub is now 3 months old and needs a name.

The Zoo launched a contest through its web site on July 25, and zoo keepers have narrowed it down to three names. They are Amaya, which means Night Rain; Amira, which means Princess; and Vera, which means Faith.
