Tiger attacks man on Khabarovsk territory

A tiger attacked a man in the Khabarovsk territory, Russia's Far East. The incident took place by the lumbering camp outside the village of Sukpai. The victim was a 41-year-old local resident, a supervisor of a road construction site by the name of Alexander Antoshin.

Witnesses said a young tiger had jumped on Antoshin, dug its teeth into his face, and dragged him off towards the forest. Builders from the camp began throwing stones and branches at the beast and finally made it retreat into the taiga. The victims was taken to a local hospital, and doctors say his life is out of danger.

A tiger attacking a human is a rare occurrence and was last registered in 1993. Ecologists from a local wildlife fund think something must have provoked the tiger's aggression, maybe a wound inflicted by a poacher. The long-haired Amur tiger is a unique animal that's been registered in the Red Book of Russia and the International Red Book. There are only 60 or so beasts of this kind in the Khabarovsk territory.
