China se mantiene alerta por visitante tigre liberado por presidente ruso

Actualizado 2014-10-09  | Spanish. xinhuanet. com

 

HARBIN, 9 oct (Xinhua) -- Los funcionarios de silvicultura de China están trabajando para localizar un tigre que presuntamente ha entrado en China tras haber sido puesto en libertad por el presidente ruso, Vladimir Putin.

El tigre siberiano, también conocido como tigre de Amur, fue observado en la reserva natural Taipinggou, distrito de Luobei de la provincia nororiental china de Heilongjiang, informó Chen Zhigang, director de la reserva natural, a Xinhua hoy jueves.

"Un experto ruso nos llamó para informar de la localización del tigre y expresó su esperanza de que podamos protegerlo", dijo Chen, agregando que el tigre, al que se le ha puesto un aparato de rastreo, está cerca del río Heilongjiang, fronterizo entre China y Rusia.

Chen aseguró que han enviado personal para instalar más de 60 cámaras con la esperanza de capturar su imagen y eliminar posibles trampas. Se ha pedido a la policía forestal que notifique a los campesinos locales sobre la presencia del animal.

Según Chen, la comida no debería ser un problema para el tigre, ya que la reserva natural de 20.000 hectáreas cuenta con una rica diversidad de vida salvaje. "Pero si es necesario, podemos liberar ganado en la región para alimentarlo".

Los medios de comunicación rusos informaron de que el tigre, llamado Kuzya, es uno de los tres ejemplares que Putin puso en libertad en mayo.

China keeps an eye on tiger freed by Russian president

 

HARBIN, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- Chinese forestry officials are working to locate a tiger that has allegedly roamed into China after being released by Russian President Vladimir Putin into the wild.

The Siberian tiger, also known as the Amur tiger, was observed at the Taipinggou nature reserve in Luobei County in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, Chen Zhigang, director of the nature reserve, told Xinhua on Thursday.

"A Russian expert called to tell us the location of the tiger and expressed the hope that we can protect it," Chen said, adding that the big cat, tagged with a tracking device, is near the Heilongjiang River along the Sino-Russian border.

Chen said they have dispatched personnel to remove possible traps and set up more than 60 cameras in the hope of capturing its image. Forestry police officers are required to notify local farmers about the tiger's presence.

He said food should not be a problem for the tiger since the 20,000-hectare nature reserve features rich diversity of wildlife. "But if necessary, we can release cattle into the region to feed it."

Russian media reported that the tiger, named Kuzya, was among three rare Siberian tigers set free by Putin in May. The tracking device showed the young tiger crossed the border into China from Russia's Jewish Autonomous Region.

Fewer than 500 Siberian tigers remain in the wild, mainly in eastern Russia, northeast China and northern parts of the Korean Peninsula. China puts its own number of wild Siberian tigers between 18 and 22, mostly living in the border areas.

Chen said Siberian tigers have not been found before in Luobei County. However, traces of the endangered species, including infrared pictures, footprints and feces, have frequently emerged in other parts of Heilongjiang thanks to its improving habitat.

Based on years of observation, experts concluded that wild Siberian tigers have settled in forests administrated by the Dongfanghong Forestry Bureau in the eastern part of the province.

Since April, commercial timber logging has been banned in Heilongjiang's two major forests, the Greater and Lesser Hinggan Mountains. Aimed at restoring the ecosystem, the ban ended more than half a century of logging in China's largest forest area.

According to the latest findings in September, forestry authorities in the province have for the first time discovered traces of Siberian tigers in a planted forest zone, the Linkou Forest Zone, suggesting that tigers roaming along the China-Russia border have begun to migrate into new forests inland.

  • : Ecología y sostenibilidad socioambiental, énfasis en conservación de ríos y ecosistemas, denuncia de impacto de megaproyectos. Todo esto es indesligable de la política y por ello esta también se observa. Ecology, social and environmental sustainability, emphasis on conservation of rivers and ecosystems, denounces impact of megaprojects. All this is inseparable from politics, for it, the politics is also evaluated.
