"With the fall of the
Soviet Empire, the realm of the mighty Siberian tiger is gravely
threatened. The great old
growth forests of eastern Siberian are being decimated to make quick cash
for the collapsed Russian economy. Of
course, entire ecosystems, including large animals like tigers and bears,
are in jeopardy. This young fellow, of the largest tiger subspecies,
altaica, found in eastern
Siberia and Manchuria, appears unaware of the fate of his race. After romping around and rolling about, he has dropped onto the
soft, white powder for a quick, snowy nap."
