VLADIVOSTOK, February 18. /TASS/. A Siberian tiger that crossed the Russian border in mid-November and spent several weeks in north-eastern China has been sent to a zoo in southern Russia, environmentalists said on Wednesday.
Ustin is one of five tiger cubs found in the far eastern taiga two years ago and taken to a special rehabilitation center. They were tagged with tracking devices and released into the wild last summer.
The decision to take Ustin to the zoo in the city of Rostov-on-Don was made as he started approaching villages and attacking dogs after his return from China.
