Putin Gets a Siberian Tiger for His Birthday

Okay, honestly, can we get a ticker going on how many times I ask what decade or century it is again? Honestly, since when did it become okay again for world leaders to accept endangered wild life as a gift? Maybe Putin can go big game hunting next.

Russia Today: On Tuesday an anonymous supporter gave Prime Minister Vladimir Putin a gift with bite - a two-month-old Siberian tiger cub. Two days on Prime Minister showed off his new pet before handing it over to a Zoo. The event, which attracted a lot of media’s attention, was held in Putin’s country house.

Vladimir Putin is not stranger to animals he's often been seen in the company of his beloved labrador Koni. Russia’s Prime Minister was quick to point out that the tiger and dog haven't met.
