Be sure you maintain the minimum distance from these new predators. Details in this news article:

I don't understand the "logic" of culling non-native mountain goats but introducing non-native tigers - and the praising them as predators of the non-native goats. They are predators of anything.

This just seems surreal to me.

Tiger King's tigers come to the Tetons. Bizarre.

TetonBill,

If releasing tigers into the ecosystem will help keep down the burgeoning population of kangaroos that were released in Wyoming last April 1st, it's worth it. ; - ) LOL

I will assume they will allow permitted hunting of the new species? Great way for the NPS to make some extra cash. Of course, you'd have to hunt at night since tigers are nocturnal.

I believe that hunting will be limited to jackalopes.

Just think of all the exciting wildlife watching opportunities for when the bears and tigers start interacting with each other.

Saber toothed cats were a tremendous predator of the Ice Age in Wyoming. No foolin.'

I was hoping they were the Siberian tigers instead of the Bengal that’s shown. I’m thinking the Bengals will need to be outfitted with polarfleece Snuggies.

"Saber toothed cats were a tremendous predator of the Ice Age in Wyoming. No foolin.'"

So were mammoths. Good luck bringing those back.
