Two rare, endangered tiger cubs from China will be trained to hunt 7,000 miles away in South Africa, as part of a program to preserve the species. The full story via CNN is here.Tigers are Asian cats, unlike the tiger spoof in Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. The Chinese flavor of striped feline is the most endangered of them all.

Actually, I am fairly certain many antelope have fallen to tigers in the Prehistoric. People forget that the world is not as it once was, and the range of tigers (as well as other animals) was once vast. Tigers covered all of Asia, and Asia has species of antelope even today, such as the Saiga. Imagine how many more used to be there.
