He'll be transferred on Sunday to the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch, a sanctuary for animals including other tigers. Houston Police shared a photo of India wearing a turquoise sparkly collar while being fed a bottle of milk by Gia Cuevas - the wife of alleged murderer Victor Cuevas, who owned the tiger. 'We...

    A tiger was spotted on the loose in a Houston neighborhood Sunday night — with one man pointing what appears to be a gun at the wild animal. The big cat with a collar was roaming around the residential area on Ivy Wall Drive at about 8 p.m. when the unidentified, apparently armed man yells at another man to take the tiger inside, KHOU 11 reported. The apparent owner eventually grabs the tiger and brings it back inside his home, photos show.

    The part of Hawthorne Boulevard where Tiger Woods lost control of his SUV Tuesday and was seriously injured in a rollover crash is a steep, winding road described by locals and officials as a “hotspot” for car crashes. At the intersection where Woods crashed, Hawthorne Boulevard forms the border of Rancho Palos Verdes and Rolling Hills Estates — part of the Palos Verdes Peninsula known for tony gated neighborhoods, cliffside vistas and winding seaside roads. One man who lives in the area told KTLA Tuesday that the stretch of road is dangerous if you’re not careful. “The one thing that...

    To photograph one of rarest creatures on Earth you have to be incredibly skilled and remarkably lucky. But Sergey Gorshkov is clearly both - as demonstrated by his stunning picture of a Siberian, or Amur, tiger deep in the forests of Russia's Far East. The image has just won him the title of Wildlife Photographer of the Year. The female tiger is seen embracing a tree, rubbing herself against the bark to leave her scent and mark territory in Land of the Leopard National Park. "The lighting, the colours, the texture - it's like an oil painting," says WPY chair...

    Tiger Woods has won The Masters tournament in an astonishing comeback after 14 years without a green jacket.

It is the first time Woods has won a major when he did not have a lead or co-lead after 54 holes, and his first win at The Masters since 2005. Woods caught up with tournament leader Francesco Molinari on the 12th hole, when...

    The army’s fleet of 22 Tiger armed reconnaissance helicopters (ARHs) appears to face an uncertain future with the Department of Defence confirming that they will be replaced in the mid-2020s and that they will not be upgraded in the meantime. Until then they will continue to receive a number of apparently minor improvements through a capability assurance program. Enthusiasm for the Tigers has waxed and waned over recent years and now, following another lengthy grounding, a Defence Department spokesperson was prepared only to say: “The capability assurance program is limited and designed to ensure Tiger remains effective until a replacement...
