A tiger previously released into the wild by Vladimir Putin has been filmed eating a domestic dog in China, according to reports.
Kuzia, the name given to the tiger, was filmed devouring the dog for two hours on Heixiazi island, Sky News reports. Heixiazni links China and Russia.
The rare Amur tiger was fitted with a tracking device before being released by the Russian President and apparently crossed the border into China two months ago. It was reportedly filmed eating the dog for two hours before disappearing from view on Wednesday.
Reports say Kuzia has now crossed back into Russia.
The State Forestry Administration's Feline Research Center, Zhang Minghai, said Kuzaa is likely to visit China again as it designating his 'territory' by marking the area with urine, state news agency Xinhua reported.
