      Where did the Amur come from, SSP reject?
    • Milwaukee Man
      @DelacoursLangur I don't know exactly where this individual came from, but it most likely came from a private facility, was once privately-owned, or maybe rescued. There are actually several tigers that can be found in private hands, especially Amurs, Bengals, or "generic" mixes (correct me if I'm wrong on this part).
    • DelacoursLangur
      @Milwaukee Man There are several thousand tigers in private hands in the US, all of them generic bengal mixes. Whats unusual here is that its labeled as an Amur, of which I am not aware of any private holders. Either it came from a zoo or its mislabeled...

      @DelacoursLangur Probably mislabeled, tends to be common among tigers held outside the AZA. Not always, but frequently. :p

      @DelacoursLangur It's not true that all tigers in private hands are generic. I know there are some pure Malayan around, so it's possible there are some pure Amur around as well.
    • DelacoursLangur
      @birdsandbats Really?? Thats very interesting I wonder the backstory on that. Do you have any source material I could read about these pure Malayans by chance?
