TigerTime and the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) have made an emergency grant to ensure that rare Amur tigers are kept fed and away from conflict with humans in the Russian Far East this winter. But the money won’t be used to dish out food directly to the tigers but to buy forage for the wild boar that make up fifty per cent of the big cats’ diet.

On November 21, 2013, while patrolling the Land of the Leopard National Park (Primorsky krai, Russian Far East), rangers discovered a dead male Amur tiger. The predator is believed to have been killed by poachers in a late night hunting incident, taking into account that a gunshot wound was found below its shoulder. A post-mortem examination will be performed soon in order to determine the cause of death.
