Tiger eats a cow – level 3
This video footage released by China’s Jilin Forestry Department shows a wild Siberian tiger feeding on an ox.
On Tuesday, the day marking Global Tiger Day, the tiger was caught using a far-infrared camera.
It is the first time that China has caught the moment of a wild Siberian tiger feeding on its prey.
The feeding happened near a pasture and the Hunchun National Siberian Tiger Nature Reserve in China’s Hunchun City.
Wildlife experts believe that the video shows the population of wild Siberian tigers is increasing and the species’ range of activity is expanding.
Wild Siberian tigers are the first-class nationally-protected animals. Fewer than 500 are believed to survive in the wild, with an estimated 18 to 22 in the Heilongjiang and Jilin provinces in China.
Difficult words: feed (eat), ox (cow), prey (animal which is eaten by another animal), pasture (land covered with grass).
