An extremely rare Amur tiger has been seen walking along a local highway in Russia’s Far East on Friday.
Military officers were driving on the Vladivostok-Nakhodka motorway on Thursday night, when they saw an Amur tiger walking calmly down the road. According to servicemen, the animal paid no attention to the passing cars. Then the big cat crossed the road and disappeared into the woods near village of Polk.
The local Emergency Department has said there could be three more tigers from the same family lived in the area. Experts say there is no danger for local residents, as tigers don't attack people without some serious problems within the pride.
The Amur Tiger is considered as the biggest member of its biological species. These unique animals are included in the Extinct Species List, with only about 400 remaining, according to National Geographic.
