A Bengal tiger rests in an enclosure at India's Arignar Anna Zoological Park in 2018. — AFP Photo NEW DELHI — India's wild tiger population has increased by more than 30 per cent in the last four years, according to a new census released on Monday, raising hopes for the survival of the endangered species. In what Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed as a "historic achievement", the census found 2,967 tigers in the wild across the country, up from 2,226 four years ago. "We reaffirm our commitment towards protecting the tiger," Modi said in Delhi at the release of the latest census. "Some 15 years ago, there was serious concern about the decline in the population of tigers. It was a big challenge for us but with determination, we have achieved our goals." The massive surveys are conducted every four years, with the latest census, titled All India Tiger Estimation Report 2018, spanning 15 months and using 26,000 camera traps that took almost 350,000 images across … [Read more...] about India’s wild tiger population jumps to almost 3,000: census
Tony Paul The Detroit News Published 2:59 PM EDT May 22, 2019 Detroit — It looks different these days, the old neighborhood. The high rises from the Jeffries Housing Projects have made way for upscale townhomes, the old playground where Willie Horton hit some of his earliest prodigious home runs has been spruced up. But some things never change. "This is home," Horton said Wednesday, the latest day in his honor. "If I go downtown five days a week, I stop by here four times." Horton, the Detroit legend and former Tigers great, was celebrated by the City of Detroit, which officially unveiled Willie Horton Drive at the intersection of Canfield Street and the John C. Lodge service drive. Willie Horton Drive will be the secondary name of that portion of Canfield, the blue ceremonial street sign sitting atop the green primary one. A steady rain fell as several speakers reflected on Horton's life and legacy, but it couldn't damper the spirit of the ceremony — … [Read more...] about Detroit names city street after Tigers legend Willie Horton
Gene Myers Special to Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Apr 11, 2019 Gibby’s home run for the ages against the Goose. The 35-5 start, unmatched in baseball annals. Morris’ nationally televised no-hitter. Bergman’s 13-pitch battle – “going to war,” his teammates called it – before his walk-off homer against the Blue Jays. Bless you boys. Memories of the 1984 Detroit Tigers, even 35 years after they won the World Series, bring so much joy to so many Michiganders. I like to think that I did a bit part to help those memories. How? Wait until you hear the inside story of the Free Press’ famous photo of Gibby’s dramatic homer. However, and I hesitate to admit it even decades later, I rooted for the Royals to beat the Tigers in the American League playoffs. (I did switch allegiances while in the Tiger Stadium stands for Game 3, with my wife of 3½ months, as Milt Wilcox and Willie Hernandez finished off a sweep with a 1-0 … [Read more...] about Detroit Tigers: 1984 World Series launched this man’s career
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina woman was fatally shot by another driver as she tried to leave the scene of a minor accident with two children in her car, said police, who were searching Wednesday for the gunman. The shooting happened Sunday afternoon in Greensboro, but it took several days for details to emerge about the apparent accident that may have stoked tensions before the shooting. Carolyn Rose Tiger, 26, was shot at a busy intersection in a commercial area after the man driving the other car pulled a rifle from his trunk and opened fire, Greensboro Police said in a news release Tuesday. Police said that she and the male driver appear to have been involved in a minor accident, and he tried to block her in with his car. The release said he then “got out of his car and retrieved a rifle from his trunk and opened fire on the victim’s vehicle as it was attempting to leave the area.” Tiger was struck by gunfire, and her car then crashed into a fence. … [Read more...] about N.C. woman with 2 children in car is shot, killed by other driver
