KHABAROVSK, August 14. /TASS/. A Siberian tiger cub from a species threatened by extinction was found shot dead in the Khabarovsk region of Russia’s Far East, local officials said on Friday.
Cycling tourists found the cub, less than 8 months old, on July 29, filmed the body on their cell phones and alerted police. Officers were unable to find the body but video material was enough to open a criminal case.
Siberian tigers are on the Red List of endangered species and are legally protected under Russian law. Slaying is punishable by seven years in jail and a $31,000 fine.
