How Many Tigers Does It Take to Destroy a Snowman? - VIDEO


One safari park in Wiltshire, England (where it won't stop snowing, apparently) set a couple of snowmen up so its four Amur tigers would stay amused as the new ice age set in. No doubt they're yearning for warmer climes.

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Amur tigers come from an area with harsher winters than this!

  8. Maybe Liza needs to go over and sing "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas to give them a bit of motivation...

  10. Oh, yeah, and Andy, just for reference's sake:

    The Amur river is the world's tenth-longest river, forming the border between the Russian Far East and Northeastern China.

    It does kind of follow that the beast named Panthera tigris altaica would be called the Amur tiger, being very location-specifc, but also the SIBERIAN tiger, being more region-specific.

    Its vewwy cowd in Sibewia.

  11. God animals a stupid. It's amazing. A 400 lb tiger has no more brains than my housecat. All they can do is hunt, eat, be pretty, strike some poses and jump around. Of course I'm charmed and fascinated. But why?

  12. SOB, cut the weight by 70% and you've just described my reaction to most twinks.

  14. Which only goes to prove that - 4 lbs. or 400 lbs. - cats are only mildly amused by stoopid hoomin tricks, they play along because they know that it would bwake ow-widdew hawts if they didn't deign to give us a little credit for trying. As you see later in the video, they can find their own toys and find them far more amusing.
    Dingie-balls and catnip-mice be damned. Let a cat fish a piece of cellophane wrapper, or a twist-tie out of the trash and it's Bailey's 3-Ring Circus for HOURS! That $170 contraption you just spent the past three hours assembling?... meh...
