Exhausted Siberian Tiger Walks Into Village To Seek Out Human Help
Tigers are no exception to the rule that wild animals avoid human contact. An endangered Siberian tigress, on the other hand, defied her natural instincts and made her way to a village. The wild feline was in desperate need of assistance because she was unable to eat due to severe tooth problems.
In a small Siberian village, the majestic creature was discovered lying in front of someone’s door. The small village of Solontsovy has about 600 residents who are all used to seeing wildlife, but a massive tiger on someone’s porch was a little too much for them. Despite this, they rushed to assist the tigress!
“Alexey Khaideyev found a tiger on his porch,” one of the residents, Galina Tsimano, explained. “When he noticed it, he wanted to go out to the yard in the morning. He started pushing the door open when he heard a tiger growl. He returned inside and began dialing all of the emergency numbers.”
The injured feline did not allow anyone to approach her, but she also did not chase them away. As a result, it was clear that she was in distress and required assistance. A rescue team arrived just in time to save the animal, thankfully. They moved her to the Alekseevka Rehabilitation Centre, where they discovered her medical issues.
Sergey Aramilev, director of the Amur Tiger Centre, told The Siberian Times, “The tigress behaved absolutely peacefully, as if she was waiting for help. However, the rare predator’s situation is critical, and immediate action is required.”
The conservationists initially assumed the wound was caused by poaching, but the evidence proved otherwise!
“There were no visible poaching injuries,” they said. “However, she has issues with her oral cavity and is completely exhausted. Her gums are in bad shape, and she doesn’t have any upper teeth.”
The team is now doing everything they can to save the tigress, as they have done in the past with other wild felines. The Siberian tiger is a critically endangered species, with fewer than 500 remaining in the wild!
