A rare animal, the Amur tiger. It is said to be the largest and strongest in the cat family, but in fact, it seems that there is also one side of a fearful person who is very cautious. The appearance of a tiger that is upset by hearing unfamiliar sounds due to a breakdown of the broadcasting in the park has become a hot topic. I investigated the truth of the broadcast accident and the topical tiger!

If you were shooting the Amur tiger while taking a nap
Photographer’s fox music around zoos and aquariums all over Japan). Originally I like animals, but I started visiting around July 2017 because of the TV anime “Kemono Friends” (TV Tokyo series). The number of visits to date is about 170 including small facilities such as the petting zoo. It seems that the ratio is higher in zoos.
The video of the topic was shot on May 7th at Asa Zoo in Hiroshima City. The vast garden is divided into 8 zones, and you can observe the dynamic life of 1650 animals of about 150 species.
Mr. Kitsura came to the park for the purpose of animals in Japanese satoyama such as Japanese raccoon dogs and Japanese red foxes. As I went around the park, I decided to take a nap of the Amur tiger in the carnivore zone located near the center, but a little “tiger” happened here.
While the tiger sleeps comfortably, there is a broadcast in the park calling for wearing a mask as a countermeasure against the new coronavirus infection. However, after a while, the sound suddenly started to be disturbed. The tiger that was taking a nap immediately responded to the unusual voice. He raises his face and looks at him with a suspicious expression. And he listens to the continuous voice, and at the end he gets up and is alert.
When I asked Mr. Kitsura about his feelings at the time of shooting, he said, “I thought I had to stop laughing.” It certainly looks like the camera is wiggle. On the other hand, the tiger said, “I was upright for a while, but then I lay down.” It seems that I was able to resume my nap safely.
It looks so unusual that there are 49,000 likes in the video. Also, people who admire “The tiger’s face is surprised when it breaks … Is this a real trouble?” “You understand that this is strange, isn’t it? Something is amazing!” Many people have commented, such as those who burst into laughter, “I remembered the Fujisaki Market,” and “Tear La La La Lai,” who remembered the stories of comedians.
