0

BEIJING: Three local politicians in China raised at least 11 endangered Siberian tigers, state media reported on Thursday after one of the animals jumped to its death from a high-rise building. The cub leaped from the 11th floor of an apartment building in the eastern city of Pingdu last month when it was spooked by fireworks set off to celebrate the Chinese New Year, officials said. Investigations revealed that the seven-month-old cub was being raised by Yang Wenzheng, a member of a municipal People’s Congress, the Communist-controlled local legislature, state broadcaster CCTV reported, citing officials.
