for illustration friday

in india last month a pregnant bengal tiger was chased up a palm tree by terrified villagers. she was rescued (after being tranquilised), treated for injuries, and released into a tiger preserve. i saw a photo of her at the moment of her release. she was in a cage on a boat, and the door of the cage opened over the side of the boat, which was in shallow water (a foot or two). the boat was loaded down with people, and the door was opened. she leaped, swam to the shore, and made for the sanctuary of the forest. Thank you, tiger rescuers.
