VLADIVOSTOK, December 24. /TASS/. A young Siberian tiger has broken a photo camera trap installed to monitor wildlife at the Leopard Land national park in Russia's Far East and taken its memory card, a park official said on Thursday.
"The tiger removed the camera from the tree and broke it into pieces with his teeth. It took away one of the camera trap’s pieces with the memory card as if he wanted to leave no trace," she said.
Bears and tigers have destroyed 10 such devices at the park during 2015. Many cameras have been destroyed by poachers.
"It is not always aggressive behaviour," said Dina Matyukhina, the park’s senior researcher. "Some animals are just curious and taste the cameras, younger animals play with them, others dislike their smells and sounds."
Leopard Land national park was founded in 2012, covering 280,000 hectares. The territory is home to 70 leopards and 30 Siberian tigers.
