. Hunter, who, according to him, was attacked by a tiger in Primorye, says that the predator was wounded, according to ANO «Center for the study and conservation of the Amur tiger».

Earlier, the authorities of Primorye reported that the Amur tiger has attacked two hunters in the Olga district, Primorye, one of them is hospitalized with lacerations to the head and left hand. The second was not injured. The General Director of ANO «Center of Amur tiger» Sergei Aramilev said earlier RIA Novosti that it is still unknown what kind of predator attacked the people. Group of the centre for the resolution of conflicts with wild animals went to the place to check. From the surviving hunter was unable to obtain information about the incident. When his wounded colleague came to, he said that he was attacked by a tiger, and he was forced to kill the predator.

According to hunter, before the meeting with the tiger he was checking traps in the woods.

«Attack of the tiger is almost never unprovoked. According to information obtained from the victim, the tiger already had wounds. If this is true, then this really is the reason for the attack. Often large predators injured from a man trying to take revenge, but not always under their «hot hand» gets the right person,» — said Aramilev.
