Siberian Tigers Find New Home in Gyeongsang Arboretum

Two endangered Siberian tigers have been relocated to the Baekdu Mountain Range National Arboretum in North Gyeongsang Province. 

This is the first time in nearly a century for Siberian tigers, which are also called Mount Baekdu tigers, to be released in a forest in the southern Korean Peninsula.

The 15-year-old and eleven-year-old males were originally donated by China, and had been kept at facilities in Pocheon and Daejeon. 

The Korea Forest Service says female tigers will be brought in as early as April with an eye towards propagation, and that the public will eventually get to see the tigers once they've adjusted to their new home.
