A BBC film crew captured candid video of tigers living and breeding in the Himalayan mountains of Bhutan after local inhabitants told them they’d seen big cat tracks.
Everyone was surprised because tigers are believed to be jungle creatures who live only in more tropical climates. Problem is, man can’t seem to hunt them and destroy their habitats fast enough, so tigers are now on the brink of extinction.
It seems perfectly logical to me. Cats love high places. The beleaguered tigers probably decided, “Screw humans!” and took to the mountains where the air’s too thin for gun-toting crazies to always be after them.
Now that people know tigers are comfortable living at this altitude, where they don’t have to worry about anybody building malls and condos on top of them, sanctuaries can be created so they can breed in safety and save their species.
The tigers would say, “Well, DUH. Where else did you humans think we’d be? Floating around in your polluted oceans with the tar balls, dodging cruise ship propellers?”
