KHABAROVSK, March 13 (Itar-Tass) —— A tiger regularly appears on the outskirts of the village of Tumnin in the Khabarovsk Territory, keeping the residents scared.
The animal has already killed five dogs, a village administration source said.
According to local hunters, the tiger appears on the village's outskirts one time in about three days. Meat of one victim is enough for the animal for the time.
The village’s head Viktor Zakharov said it was the first appearance of a tiger there. Usually, dogs are attacked by a young animal. Supposedly, it may be a cub of a tigress killed by a man to defend himself in late January this year near a taiga bee garden, 100 km away from the village of Vysokogorny.
In the Far East, tigers inhabit the Primorsky and Khabarovsky Territories. The last "census" of the taiga inhabitants ended in late February. Specialists of environmental protection organizations and other structures study the data at present. The information about the number of tigers will be known in six-eight weeks. According to the previous "census", about 450 Amur tigers lived in the Far East.
Specially protected natural areas are formed in the region -- the Ussuriisky and Lazovsky reserves, the national parks Zov Tigra (a Tiger's Call), Udegeiskaya Legenda and Anyuisky and a number of other reserves and ecological corridors.
