Scoop by BBC Team – Highest Living Tigers Located

Here comes solid evidence that tigers can live and breed at extremely high altitudes. The evidence has been provided by an intrepid BBC camera team working in the high altitude areas of Bhutan. The tigers were filmed more than 4,000 metres high in the Himalayas.
In this dramatic expedition explorer Steve Backshall , cameraman Justine Evans,  scientist George McGavin  and big cat biologist Alan Rabinowitz   is joined by sniffer dog Bruiser.
The discovery could pave the way to create a conservation corridor, linking populations of the endangered tiger across Asia.
The documentary Lost Land of the Tiger will be broadcast on BBC One at 21.00BST on Tuesday 21st, Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd September.
