Video Of “Wild” China Tiger Reported To Be Faked

From Reuters:

A Chinese TV journalist faces prosecution after he sought to pass off video footage of a circus tiger as evidence that a wild tiger lived in a forest park in southern China, local media reported on Tuesday.

It marked the latest in a series of cases in which China’s media have questioned the authenticity of purported images of endangered animals.

Wu Hua, a reporter with a local television station in Pingjiang county in southern Hunan province, asked wildlife authorities on Wednesday to verify the identity of a tiger he said he had “unintentionally captured on film”, Xinhua news agency said.
