Wat doen onze tijgers eigenlijk de hele dag?

Borya.

's Avonds na zes uur komen alle tijgers naar buiten, alsof ze het afgesproken hebben.

Kuzia zoekt een plekje op de top van de heuvel of op een open plek. Boria klimt op het dak van zijn grot. Ustin strijkt neer op een open plek met uitzicht op alle slaapplaatsen. De twee vrouwtjes, Svetlaya en Ilona, liggen op een paadje met uitzicht op Ustins verblijf.

West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin has signed the Dangerous Wild Animal Act into law.  The bill (HB 4393), prohibiting private ownership of dangerous wild animals, was sponsored by Delegate Randy Swartzmiller (D-1).

The new law includes a recommendation on phasing out future ownership of big cats, bears, primates, venomous and constrictor snakes, and alligators; institutes a Dangerous Wild Animal Board to create a list of animals to include under the law, and addresses Animal Welfare Act violations by roadside zoos.
