Karma and the Siberian Tiger

The most bio-diverse region in Russia lies on a chunk of land sandwiched between China and the Pacific Ocean. Siberian tigers populate this region, and most of them weigh upwards of 500 pounds. They can jump as far as 25 feet, and vertically can jump over a basketball hoop. At the center of this story is Vladimir Markov, a poacher who decided to not only shoot a Siberian tiger, but to steal part of the tiger’s kill. Unbeknownst to Markov, the tiger wasn’t dead and managed to recover from its injuries after Markov had left. The tiger then staked out Markov’s cabin, systematically destroying anything that had Markov’s scent on it, and then waited by the front door for him to come home. After waiting almost 48 hours, the tiger saw Markov approaching the cabin. He lunged at Markov, dragged him into the bush, and ate him. In the end, the tiger was merely being a tiger, with maybe a little revenge tucked in.
