Cause of Amur tiger death identified
11 august 2009
WWF is concerned about the Amur tiger tissue analysis results died in mid June in the rehav center Utyos in Khabarovskii Province. All efforts of ecologists and vets to save the rare cat were in vain.
At first it was thought that the tiger was severely poisoned. Analyses were sent to the Moscow Zoo and the results showed that the tiger suffered from plague and toxoplasmosis.
