China Says Field Survey Fails to Find Tiger at Controversial Photo Site

The controversy surrounding the Huanan (South China) tiger photos is finally approaching closure, since Xinhua has announced that experts failed to find any tiger.

Months of field survey by experts from the State Forestry Administration of China has failed to find any “concrete evidence” of South China tiger in Zhenping county, Shaanxi province, where controversial tiger photos were taken in 2007.

However, the field survey will last for a while and the team will publicize the results as soon as it is finished, said Yin Hong, deputy director of the administration Monday…

The State Forestry Administration’s latest comment came after a deputy to China’s top legislature, the National People’s Congress, vowed early Monday to pressure forestry authorities into telling the public whether the photos were true or false.
