South China Tiger Photos Are ‘Fake’ – China Daily
From China Daily:
The controversy over the authenticity of photographs of the believed-to-be-extinct wild South China tiger seemed to have come to an end on Friday when a netizen posted online what he claimed was a “convincing proof” that the pictures are fakes – a New Year picture of a tiger that hangs on the wall of his home.
The man, named “panzhihua-xydz”, said: “It’s the same picture. Even the stripes are identical”.
