Big cat swims.

Fantastic photos of tiger swimming. Be amused.
But then be sad to know that in the wild there are may be only 2 500 tigers left alive and free. That there are more tigers in captivity in America than there are in the wild in India.
That at least two sub-species of tigers have already become extinct, slaughtered by men, captured for zoos and circus acts and trophies.
That within our lifetime there may be no tigers left alive in the wild and that tigers may become a myth or a sideshow or a creature found only in books.
Be amused by a swimming tiger, doing what tigers do naturally.
And then know that we three cats have more freedom than all of those tigers in captivity.
