Ecologists of the Tiger detachment, formed for protection of this rare animal and its habitats, saved an exhausted tiger cub. The ecologists didn't find any traces of the tigress. It might have been killed by poachers, the Far-Eastern natural resources department said on Monday. The tiger cub will be taken for treatment and rehabilitation to the Utyos centre of wild animals' rehabilitation, created by ecologists with the support of local authorities in Sikhote-Alin spurs.
A tiger, 17 bear cubs, who lost their parents, elks and other wild animals, who were found sick or wounded in taiga, undergo rehabilitation at the Utyos centre.
The experts are trying to find out the causes for the tigress's disappearance. Two weeks ago a man was badly injured by a tiger in the region, where the cub was found, and is in hospital now.
The discovery of the submarine has unveiled a few "inconsistencies." For example, how can one explain the fact that the sub was found where it needed to be searched for from the start?
This problem is not limited to the situation with the "whale prison" in Russia's Far East, because many people buy tickets to go to oceanariums and turn a blind eye to the problem
