Tiger in danger

A one and a half month old female baby Sumatran tiger belonging to Indonesia's critically endangered species, walks alone while being closely monitored by veterinarians in the Bandung Zoo quarantine on May 8, 2014 in Bandung city, West Java province.  The baby tiger was succesfully bred in captivity from a pair Sumatran tiger boosting the zoo's stocks to a total of 10 tigers. There are fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wilds and environmentalists say the animals are increasingly coming into conflict with people as their natural habitat is rapidly deforested.
