Born Free: Baby Tigers Will Return to the Wild

Three baby tigers, which were saved in the Ussurian taiga this winter, will return to their home wilderness, Russian researchers say.
      
      The Amur tiger cubs will learn to hunt and to survive in natural environment. After a training course, which will last several months, the tigers will be released.
      
      Tiger cubs, which were saved earlier, were usually sent to various zoos. Now a programme of tiger rehabilitation, developed by Russian ecologists, allows these animals to return to native forests. One tiger has already returned to the wilderness.
      
      Only 450-500 Amur tigers are left in natural environments. Ecologists find orphan cubs every year, because poachers kill their mothers. If rehabilitation programme works, many tigers can return to normal life in the wild.
