Beijing, Oct. 30 (PD Online) --On the afternoon of Oct. 28, wild animal experts have reached Mishan City to do investigation of the cause of death of a suspected wild Amur tiger found on Oct. 27 in Fuyuan village of Mishan City in Heilongjiang province, according to the Public Security Frontier Station of Fuyuan Village.

An autopsy revealed a steel wire ring on the neck of the tiger. The experts made the preliminary judgment that the steel wire ring had hindered the tiger's ability to hunt for food, which ultimately resulted in starvation.

It is estimated that the tiger was caught by the steel wire ring when it was hunting for boar or roe deer. Though it managed to escape the ring was left on the neck permanently. The eventual cause of death will be given after a comprehensive inspection.
