I never go to zoos; who does? But long ago, before the Soviet invasion and long before 9/11, I went to Kabul zoo and saw the one and only tiger they had; full grown, in a bare cage not much bigger than itself with an [empty] water bowl in a corner. What a persecuted species the tiger has been; only around 3000 left in the wild. So glad to read this piece about an increase in the tiger population.
