Camera catches evidence of tigers returning to China

No votes yet

A baited camera trap caught the first image of a wild Siberian tiger in north-eastern China, raising hopes that the species might return to its old haunts. The tiger was all but extinct in China from poatching, but much of its old habitat remains intact. Scientists hope migrating tiger populations from Russia and captive bred introduced animals can rebuild the population if hunting bans can be maintained.
