Snow Cat

"Snow Cat" 14" x 21"oil on canvas. Copy right K. Widger 2016
He's an Amur Tiger, cousin to the Siberians, and he lives way up North in the coldest latitudes.  Even more endangered than the Siberian, his numbers dwindle as he is poached for his bones, organs and beautiful pelt.  Still, he holds on to his rightful place on this Earth as best he can, unaware that these next few decades may see the end to his race of beings due to the greed and ignorance of man, far more so than loss of habitat.  He's got plenty of room to live his life, but he's no match for the horrible devices man devises to track and kill him.  When will we ever learn....when will we ever learn?
