Canine Virus May Hurt The Felines Of The Chinese People
Genetic studies have found the canine distemper virus strain is highly contagious to Siberian tigers, said Wang Xiaolong, professor at the Northeast Forestry University, at a seminar in Harbin, capital of China’s Heilongjiang Province, on Tuesday.
Fewer than 500 Siberian tigers remain in the wild, mainly living in eastern Russia, northeast China, and northern parts of the Korean Peninsula. China puts its own number of wild Siberian tigers between 18 and 22. [Source]
