The arrival of the Amur tiger was celebrated in Yakutia. This is a rare phenomenon: the Red Book predator does not often reach the southern part of the northern region.

As EastRussia was informed at the Amur Tiger Center, tiger tracks were found at the mouth of the Bollokhtokh River. The discovery was reported by the observer pilot of the Uchur air department of the Yakutsk air base of Avialesokhrana Andrei Ivanov. The tiger was also found near the reindeer herders' camp in Yakutia. Now experts understand whether it is the same individual or not.

The print of the hind paw, which the pilot found, was about 9,5 cm wide, and the front - about 10,5 cm. Therefore, this is most likely a young male. The distance from one place where we met the tiger to another is 400-450 km. At the same time, a predator can travel 20-30 km per night.

As the director of the center Sergei Aramilev noted, it is quite possible that the tiger has already returned to the Khabarovsk Territory. According to him, the wanderer hardly left in search of food or because of the increase in the number of relatives. In tigers, the mechanism of expansion of the range is observed, the same as when settling people.
