Blagoveshchensk, January 28 – The Amur Tiger Center reports that the tigress Yelena, who was released after rehabilitation, walked near a border post in the Arkharinsky district of the Amur region.
The tigress Elena walked in procession in front of the border post in the Arkharinsky district of the Amur region.
The battery on Elena’s collar died long ago, so they recognized her by the stripes. Clearly shown in the photo from the quadrocopter. Tiger stripes are as individual as human fingerprints. The footage shows the predator walking alone, which means she likely didn’t play the “wedding” with the male being celebrated with her on the site, the center’s message on the Telegram channel notes.
Experts also believe that the female with the tiger cub, whose traces were recorded in the Amur region in mid-December 2022, does not belong to Elena. Another predator was the leopard, which returned the state of the tiger group to the Amur region.

Monitoring of tigers in the Amur region is carried out by employees of the Amur Department of Wildlife Protection and specialists from the Khingan Reserve with the support of the Amur Tiger Center.
According to expert observations, the predator behaves calmly, does not show signs of aggression and does not provoke conflict situations. In the Amur region in 2022, not a single case of conflict involving tigers was recorded.
Tiger cub Pavlik and his sister Elena were removed from the wild with their mother who attacked dogs in a village in Primorye. Due to health problems, the mother was sent to the zoo in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, and on May 23, 2019, the matured Pavlik and Elena were released into the taiga of the Amur Region, where they successfully adapted to wildlife. Elena settled in the Khingan Reserve. Traces of a potential “groom” are also found in Elena’s home country in July 2021.
The Amur tiger is one of the rarest predators on the planet and is listed in the International Red Book. According to experts, as of the fall of 2020, the total number of these predators in the Russian Federation is about 600 individuals.
