Russian Tigers

Russian Tigers are huge.

They eat bears.

Ravens shriek about the treetops. If the birds are up, Fomenko warns, it means something has disturbed them. We arrive at a clearing scattered with clumps of fur. A few metres away lie the remains of a black bear, buzzing with flies. This is what we have been searching for: the recently dispatched supper of an Amur tiger.

Judging by this zoo keepers expression, they're a bit scary close-up.

Onlookers quickly responded by shouting and throwing rocks, chairs and a café table at the tiger, distracting it enough for the zookeeper to escape.

They like dogs and goats.

The first time Pavel Fomenko met a tiger, it ate his dog.

My advice to anyone thinking of messing with a Russian Tiger is take plenty of dogs and goats.

In his documentary, The Hangover, Bradley Cooper demonstrated exactly what you can do to a tiger when sufficiently motivated by illegal substances.

Not a large tiger, but scary enough to make a man pee on the floor.

Wild tiger sighting, awesome, thanks for sharing. Hoping the Russians don't believe tiger sex organs to be of value.

Had to edit after watching about the "soured" relationship." That's friendship for ya! Thanks again, now I must vacuum

Russia has been working hard to ensure the well being of their wild tigers..👍🏻

The Soviet Union brought in strict rules on hunting and the population recovered somewhat before falling again after the collapse of communism in the 1990s, when hunters were able to more easily cross the border with China and a lucrative black market re-emerged.

Since 2010, the Russian government has cracked down on poaching and implemented a host of conservation measures that have helped Russia's Far East tiger population grow to around 500 adults and perhaps 100 cubs, according to a 2018 census done by Russia's Ministry of Nature.

While hardly robust numbers — Siberian tigers are listed as endangered, according to the World Wildlife Fund — the trend line is increasing. Russian authorities believe within four years, the tiger population will grow to more than 700 animals.
