Some New Arrivals in Yorkshire

The Yorkshire Wildlife Park recently had some new arrivals in the shape of three Amur tiger cubs. The tigers are extremely rare in the wild so these young cubs are incredibly important. They are around ten weeks old and made their first foray into their enclosure last week. I took the opportunity to pop along and try and get some pictures.

Mum was pacing around for ages checking the enclosure and finally one of the cubs made an appearance, and as soon as it did mum picked him up and took him back inside.

The other two took this as their cue to break out while mum was occupied and darted into the enclosure.

Unfortunately they never came close enough to get great pictures but it really was a pleasure to see these little guys.

      They were beautiful, I just wish mum had let them come a bit closer.
