Putin`s famous encounter with tigress questioned

Questions are emerging over Vladimir Putin`s famous encounter with a tigress three years ago.



Moscow: Questions are emerging over Vladimir Putin`s famous encounter with a tigress three years ago.

Environmentalist Dmitry Molodtsov says the animal that
Putin shot with a tranquilizer gun and tagged with a GPS
collar in 2008 is different from the one later photographed in
the wild by a government-financed institute.

Molodtsov said today photos posted on the website of the
Amur tiger conservation project show different coat patterns
of the animal that Putin tagged and the tigress photographed
later in the wild.

A coordinator at the Amur tiger conservation project
dismissed his claim as untrue.

Molodtsov also alleged that the tigress Putin shot with a
tranquilizer was taken out of a local zoo, and did not live in
the wild. He cited photographs of the zoo animal as proof.
