Cambodia’s Last Tiger Dies
Phnom Tamao: The Wildlife Alliance team has made the following announcement on their Facebook page:
RIP Jasper/Map 1998 – 2019
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jasper, affectionately known as Map at Phnom Tamao. Rescued in 1998 from poachers as a cub he was believed to be the last remaining Indochinese Tiger from Cambodia’s forests. Cared for by Born Free Foundation Map was provided sanctuary at Phnom Tamao in a large forested enclosure and was often seen & heard patrolling in the afternoons. He will be sadly missed, never forgotten, may he rest in peace.
One thought on “Cambodia’s Last Tiger Dies”
Sure would have liked more details about how Map died, where he was found, by whom, what happened then…
