'older, sadder' tiger winning again? i would've liked to see that

Cathy Freeman’s gold medal in the 400 metres at the Sydney Olympics? And so the story ends! Wow, just WOW.Not for nothing do they call sport, “Shakespeare on steroids”. And that is why, incidentally, as a sports writer, I care little for bare stats, margins, winning percentages and all the rest. Booooooring!LoadingGive me the romance, the background, the characters, every time, so that the story can live and breathe, so the plot-lines have some meaning. Without that knowledge sport is just like most horse-racing – nameless nags running round for reasons best known to themselves, but you can call me “Harvey Norman", for I have “NO INTEREST”.Which brings us to Tiger Woods.His started out as an extraordinary story. From out of nowhere, the progeny of a Green Beret Vietnam Vet and a Thai Ameri

rare white tiger diagnosed with cancer dies at zoo

Officials say a rare white tiger has died at the Cincinnati Zoo.
Zoo officials said in a blog post on Thursday that the 21-year-old male tiger, named Akere, was recently diagnosed with non-treatable oral cancer. A zoo spokeswoman says the tiger was euthanized Wednesday.The zoo says Akere was in renal failure and had severe arthritis in his hips. Officials say a care team provided supportive care and medication to ease the tiger's pain, but it was clear that his quality of life was not going to improve.The zoo says the tiger was the oldest of his kind in any accredited North American zoo. A tiger's median life expectancy is 15 to 20 years.Akere arrived in Cincinnati from Nashville in 1996 when he was just 9 months old.

baby tiger found in the mail in mexico

A tiger cub has been found alive and well after someone tried to mail it interstate in Mexico. The two-month-old Bengal tiger was sedated and packed into a sealed plastic tub. It was detected by a sniffer dog looking for contraband.Although the animal was dehydrated, authorities said it was otherwise well.MORE NEWSThe cub was mailed in the western state of Jalisco to an address in the central state of Queretaro.The plastic tub was full of newspaper clippings but there was no food or water inside.Several perforations had been made in the tub to allow air to enter.The tiger has since been handed over to an animal management centre.Strangely enough, the tiger's papers were apparently in order, but it was seized because the mailing constituted mistreatment. The case remains under investigation

south korean leader says putin has 'soul of a siberian tiger'

South Korea’s president described Vladimir Putin as embodying the “spirit of a Siberian tiger” in a speech at the Eastern Economic Forum in in the Russian Far East on Thursday.“Many believe that your spirit, Mr. President, is that of an Amur tiger,” President Moon Jae-in said at the forum’s plenary session.Moon said the “vast forests and vistas” he had flown over en route to the two-day event in Vladivostok in eastern Russia reminded him of the Siberian tiger, which used to range throughout Northeast Asia, he said, “from the Siberian plains to the Korean hills.”“Koreans, since time immemorial, believe the tiger to be a sacred animal.”He noted that part of the name Moon Jae-in also translates as “tiger” from Korean, “and one may say that we’re look-alikes in terms of courage and valiancy.”T

maintaining tiger connectivity and minimising extinction into the next century

Tigers have lost 95% of their historical range, and what remains is highly fragmented. According to this study, high traffic roads and densely populated urban areas are a severe impediment to tiger movement between fragments. Unplanned development in the future will result in loss of connectivity and an increased possibility of extinction for several tiger populations. To ensure future persistence, tiger populations need to be managed as a network of protected areas connected by corridors.

brough scott: the tiger’s little legacy *h&h vip*

Tiger Roll is the horse you have got to love. The stroppy little guy who keeps getting reinvented but continues to do it strictly on his own terms.Everyone now knows that he is the first horse ever to win the Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival and to return three years later to take the four-mile National Hunt Chase in 2017 — then to cap that with the Cross-Country Chase this March.What they forget is that he was never meant to be a jumper and that his career has been littered with rejection, much of it of his own choosing.Flat-bred from a mare trained by Red Rum’s rider Tommy Stack, he never even made it to the track, despite being bought for Sheikh Mohammed, and was picked up as a three-year-old for just £10,000 by Graham Thorner and passed on to Devon trainer Nigel Hawke — both G

feel free to get excited about tiger woods’ great round of golf

Tiger Woods enjoyed a blistering round at The Open Championship on Saturday, which means you will have a reason to watch golf on Sunday. Woods hasn’t won a major championship since the 2008 U.S. Open, but he is within striking distance after posting a third-round 66 in Carnoustie, Scotland. It’s been over a decade, but Tiger fans may finally have a reason to get excited.
Since his wild infidelity scandal in 2009, Woods’ play has either been inconsistent or just plain bad. On Saturday, however, he was incisive and in control. In other words, he looked like Tiger Woods (the good Tiger Woods, not the bad one). He even threw in a fist-pump, just like old times.
Woods started the day in 29th place, but he now sits near the top of the leaderboard. As of this writing, he is four shots back from

tinder: swipe left on tiger selfies because they're cruel

Tinder is asking its users to swipe left on tiger selfies.The dating app has requested members of its community to remove any photos posed with the big cats due to their exploitative nature. The moves comes after PETA penned a letter to Tinder arguing that the practice is not only cruel because they require tigers to be caged, tied down or drugged in order to take a photo, but also dangerous for humans who might risk snapping a selfie with the animal in hopes of impressing a potential match."It’s time for the tiger selfies to go. More often than not, these photos take advantage of beautiful creatures that have been torn from their natural environment," Tinder said in a July 28 blog post.

rory mcilroy reflects on tiger woods' inspirational win at augusta

Sir Nick Faldo last week revealed that when putting the Green Jacket on his successor as the Masters champion 20 years ago, he whispered into the victor's ear, "just a bit of advice - red shirts don't go with green".
