ANIMALHYPE: Tigers Rediscovered In Indian Rainforest

Good news unless you're a small animal eking out a precarious existence in the rainforest. And remember, like a bumper sticker I saw yesterday said: "Animals are little people in fur coats."

From Reuters:

At least 20 tigers have resurfaced in a tropical rainforest in western India, almost three decades after it was thought that poaching had wiped them out there, experts said on Tuesday.

The big cats were sighted over an 800 square kilometer (300 square miles) mountainous forest range in the western state of Maharashtra, bringing rare good news in a country that is rapidly losing its wildlife to poaching and habitat destruction.
