According to Center’s specialists the young predators are doing well. The cubs started their first hunting training.

They successfully hunted down deer and wild boars. Both male and female tigers succeeded in killing of a large prey.

Cubs are well prepared for the winter. They have good fleshing and winter fur.

After the first snow the tiger cubs became more careful. Now they are most active at dusk.

Tiger Ustin and tigresses Svetlaya and Ilona became good friends — they communicate with each other through the adjacent fence.

Now the main goal of the last period of rehabilitation is honing cubs’ hunting skills and we hope that all inhabitants of the Center will cope with this task perfectly well!
