When a tiger is not longer a tiger

I found out two old pictures today. They were shot in a zoo in China many many years ago.



Tigers in China are mostly in zoos. They are fed like ranch animals everyday. But visitors are unhappy. They want to see real tigers - the big cat that can kill other animals in melee fight, in bloody way.

Therefore, the zoo i went to sent an Asian water buffalo to the cage of a tiger. But it just took forever for the tiger to kill the buffalo. It didn't know the right place to attach a buffalo. It didn't even have the teeth or mouth muscles to bite the buffalo to bleeding. The whole scene was like a game between the tiger and the buffalo.

Then visitors felt bored and all left. And they complained to the zoo that they didn't see a real tiger. 

This is the end of my story.
