Cantik the tiger

Walt: write a report/narrative

On the 28th of August 2013 a Sumatran tiger named Cantik had died in the Wellington Zoo in New Zealand. The zoo keepers were very devastated, because they had to euthanasia her. She was suffering from a malignant. Animals should euthanasia because it wouldn't hurt them if they pass away. It is easier to put them down then hurting them.

Most people that go to zoo usually visit the tiger but know maybe the people at the zoo could make a power point about Cantiks life in New Zealand. She had lived for more than 20 years. Tigers that live in the wild live for 10 years, and when they live in the zoo they live for 20 years. Cantik lived for 21 years.

There are about 200 tigers left in the wild and in the near future they might be extinct.She had 20 off springs and most of them were sent to Australia and some still live in  New Zealand.

Cantik means beautiful in Indonesian. I will miss the “Cantik” tiger very much.
