BBC tracks down tigers in the Himalayas

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

The BBC's Natural History team has found evidence of breeding tigers in the Hymalayan mountains of Bhutan, over 4000m above sea level, using a set of remote cameras.

The discovery sparked hopes of extending a 'conservation corridor' through the mountains.

In other news, the woman who dumped a cat in a wheelie bin has been charged with causing unnecessary suffering and an unsuitable environment.

For some reason I'm glad to see that woman get some kind of punishment.

Agreed!

Regrettably, the article doesn't say how the cat fared from the incident.

EDIT: A little googling uncovered a couple of other stories that indicated the cat was trapped for 15 hours and was freed relatively unharmed and reunited with its owner.
