Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Big city lights: Rare Amur tiger enjoying night landscape caught on camera in Russia’s Far East”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The image, shared by the “Land of the Leopard” national park in Russia’s Far East, shows the tiger gazing at the light emanating from the city in the distance. The national park also shared pictures of rare Amur leopards with the caption “Wild cats in the city! But no panic! A part of the national park’s territory belongs to the Vladivostok city region.”

Currently, 91 adult Amur leopards and 22 cubs, as well as 30 adult Amur tigers and 9 cubs live in the Land of the Leopard National Park, according to its data.

Дикие кошки в городе! ???? Дальневосточный леопард и амурский тигр были отмечены фотоловушкой в пределах Владивостока. Однако без паники ????Дело в том, что часть национального парка «Земля леопарда» территориально входит во Владивостокский городской округ. https://t.co/bcioqUoUMPpic.twitter.com/5bqxe0TcKa

The animals tend to avoid people and spotting one near a populated area is extremely unlikely, however, residents of the villages in the Far East have complained about tigers hunting pet dogs in the winter months.

Amur tigers are considered the world largest wild cat species. They were once found throughout the Russian Far East, northern China, and the Korean peninsula, but hunting had driven the Amur tiger to the brink of extinction by the 1940s. The species was saved when Russia became the first country in the world to grant the tiger full protection.
