Evreiskaya Province is becoming new home for two tiger cubs
The animals were tranquilized, fitted with GPS collars, checked-up by the vets, and put into transportation cages bound to Evreiskaya Province. The exact place of the release is not shared but the area is a remote one and rich with wild ungulates, tigers’ main prey.
On May 13 the tigers arrived to the taiga, were sedated once again and put into the newly constructed adaptation enclosure 50x50 meters wide. The specialists call this release a soft one meaning that the tigers will have one week to recover from a long way from Primorye, to get used to the new environment, and be ready to leave the enclosure for the real taiga.
Let us remind that the female tiger cub was captured in the village of Lazo, Primorye, on December 2016 while Saikhan was delivered into the Rehabilitation Centre in January 2017. After several months of medical treatment and quarantine the cubs were put together to share one vast enclosure.
WWF-Russia, and Amur Tiger Centre are among the ones dealing with conflicts resolution between tigers and humans in the Russian Far East.
