Tourist snaps ‘extinct’ Chinese tiger
Published on Nov 3, 2010
A photograph taken by a tourist in China’s Anhui province could contain evidence of the existence of the supposedly extinct South China tiger. According to local media reports, the Chinese photographer captured a shot of a yellow, two-metre long animal at the province’s Sanqing Mountain last month. China News Service reported wildlife experts at Guangzhou’s Sun Yat-sen University as saying that the animal could be a tiger. A South China tiger was previously thought to have been photographed by a farmer in 2007, before the pictures were found to be fake. The species has not been seen in the wild for more than 20 years.
