In the Russian Far East Primorye, a young Amur tiger left the forest with an illegal poachers trap grasping his paw. The weakened tiger was crying out from the pain as he entered the village. The tiger appeared to be asking for help as he walked from place to place and  didn’t seem interested in returning to the forest.

Paw Caught in a Trap

Local hunters,  came to the aid of the young male, thought to be about one year of age, by calling on the police and forest rangers for their assistance.  The tiger was humanely  captured and the trap was successfully removed from his paw. Local  experts think the tiger accidentally got caught in a trap set for a much smaller animal.  The lure of the bait in the trap was too hard for the tiger to resist.
