I'm trying to trace which was/were the last purebred Indian Tigers in the UK. The story so far; it appears several litters of orange tigers carrying the 'white' gene were produced between 1989-91 at Bristol Zoo (white female x normal male) and these represented the last descendants of the Bristol 'white tiger' line. Some of them were sent to Pakistan but three females went to Longleat. Providing their normal coloured father was also from pure Indian stock, these were possibly the last pure Indian tigers seen in the UK. Can anyone give any further insight into their history at Bristol or Longleat(or elsewhere- I believe one may have been transferred to Glasgow Zoo), or what later happened to them breeding wise? N.B. the 'messybeast' link where some of this comes from gives no further details except to record that they were sent to Longleat.
