RAW: Amur tiger cub adopted by Moscow police

Police in Moscow adopted a four-month-old Amur Tiger cub on Tuesday in honour of Police Day.

The cub, named Styopa after the main character of a popular Russian children’s book, was saved from poachers in the Russian city of Nizhnevartovsk.

He will be eventually sent to a reserve instead of the wild for feat that he would not survive after being captured.

There are only an estimated 400 to 500 Amur Tigers living in the wild, but the latest studies show their numbers are stable and growing.
