Description:The photo that Bob21 uploaded recently was taken from this photo only cropped a bit closer. The information provided with the photo (by Bob21) was probably nothing but pure fiction, but at it's best had nothing to do with the photo. The man, hugging the tiger, in the photo is South African naturalist Kevin Richardson. The tiger in the photo is undoubtedly a circus animal (note the totally clipped claws) and certainly not an animal in the wild. This photo was taken as a promotional photo and has been widely available as a wallpaper. There is absolutely no connection with the information provided by Bob21 about a tiger being raised from a cub and then released back into the wild. This information is basically unfeasible to start with.
