Wild South China Tiger Sighting


An incredibly rare sighting of a young, wild South China tiger - with accompanying photographic evidence - has surprised tiger researchers who feared the subspecies was extinct save for those living in captivity. But a farmer in Shaanxi province handed in the photos earlier this month of what has now been confirmed as a South China tiger. The last recorded sighting of a South China tiger in the wild was in 1964.

This is WONDERFUL news! I had to do a happy dance after reading that. My heart is beaming. Come on little tigers, you can do it! Don't let us wretched humans keep you down. We suck. You absolutely need to stand your ground and come back. I'm rooting for you.
