70 Siberian tiger cubs bred in China

Harbin (China), July 25 (IANS) China’s biggest Siberian tiger breeding center said on Saturday that more than 70 cubs were born this year with the breeding season coming to a close.

Heilongjiang Siberian Tiger Park, where about 1,000 Siberian tigers live, each year picks certain tigers to breed the next generation, Xinhua reported.

“It’s good for the balance of the core species group,” said Liu Dan, the park’s chief engineer.

Liu said about 100 tiger cubs could be born by the end of this year.

The tiger cubs would stay with their mothers for three months and then begin living independently in outdoor areas of the park.

Siberian tigers are among the world’s most endangered species. They mostly live in northeast China and eastern Russia.
