OK. This is not QUITE what it seems. First I talked to Disney PR -- They hadn't heard of this. So my station (WKMG Local 6) reached out to Central Florida Zoo. Here's what they told us:
This is not, as you say, “for real”. David Tetzlaff, took in a Bengal cat a the request of a call from a Disney property. The animal is nota Bengal tiger; it is a ten day old Bengal cat, which is basically a domestic species, largely available in the private sector. The animal’s mother and siblings passed away and the Disney guests who brought it with them on vacation are hand-rearing the animal at present. The animal will be returned to them tomorrow.
Sorry I am just getting back to you, we have a lot going on this week preparing for a big event this weekend, Brews Around the Zoo, which sold out today!
All the best,
