    Four tigers found at suburban Jakarta home

    Four tigers found at suburban Jakarta home


    A pair of tigers and three cubs were found in Jakarta earlier this month

    Indonesian conservation officials have discovered four fully-grown tigers at a house in Jakarta, along with several rare cockatoos and birds of paradise.

    They are now trying to establish whether the tigers belong to the endangered Sumatran species, of which there are only about 400 in the wild.

    A conservation officer told the BBC they were looking for the homeowner.

    He or she could face a heavy fine and a prison sentence of up to five years for illegally keeping the animals as pets.

    Earlier this month, officials discovered a pair of adult tigers and three cubs that had been raised by a man in Jakarta over the last 25 years.

    The Indonesian government has said it is considering entrusting Sumatran tigers to private individuals for safe-keeping in an attempt to save the species.

    Much of the forest they live in has been has been lost to illegal logging and deforestation.

    because it would be really difficult to find someone who actually owns the house... ?

    the get out clause because they already know the person is powerful and will have them killed if they rule against him.

    However, you'll be in the shit when they discover that pair or sperm covered orangutangs in your bedroom Wills

    actually in this case, they already have discussed it, its not an excuse, just a stupid idea.

    ^^^^

    OK, I'm confused...i know it doesn't take much..but here goes....See below...

    "Four tigers found at suburban Jakarta home"
    "A pair of tigers and three cubs"

    now I'm pretty crap a maths...
    (that's math for you Americans out there) only kidding
    A pair...that's 2 right, and three cubs..
    I'm no genius but that would suggest an amount of five (5) Tigers... Just an observation..

    Depending on who you are and how much cash you've got...whether you live in a flat or not will be inconsequential...

    Indonesian politicians have profited very nicely from it, thank you.

    And then we read " 4 adult Tigers " now hang on is that now 4 adults and 3 cubs = 7 or is it a pair (2 ) or is an Indonesian pair 3 plus 3 cubs thats 6 - nah I give up mathematics and I were never comfortable together ?

    that picture relates to last month, a pair of tigers and 3 cubs.

    yesterday they found 4 adult tigers.

    Their math is fine, their communication leaves a little to be desired.

    ^ Shit no wonder it was a confusing read..thanks for the confirmation....sorry ain't got much time to read the articles today...well busy...

    On another note staying with the animals theme though.

    On the BBC last night 7:30 Thai time...there was a report that they have just found out that Elephants talk to each other....!!!!!!!!!!!
    No shit....everything on the planet is dumb except for us...Oh come on please...every animal and even plant talks..we just can't understand it....How arrogant we really are..

    Or did I smoke too much and eat too many shroom's when I was young...
    I still believe it...too much in the way of proof...for me
