Part of the range also included the Korean peninsular. While we've know that the Siberian tiger isn't found in South Korea, there were optimistic rumours that a few may have persisted in North Korea. It was just that nobody could find a way to do a survey in North Korea. But that faint hope has died as conditions in North Korea leaked out.
Now the Korea Times is announcing the release of two Siberian tigers (donated by China) in a purpose built reserve (Baekdu-daegan arboretum). Well, at least they're announcing plans to release two Siberian tigers by 2014 . The intention is to expand this reserve to a point where 30 tigers can be sustained.
