"Siberian Tiger Did Not Catch Fatal Virus In Iran"

Iran says a Siberian tiger that died in Tehran two weeks ago was already infected with a fatal respiratory disease when delivered by Russian officials.

Russia gave the tiger to Iran in April 2010 along with a Siberian tigress in exchange for two Persian leopards. But the male jungle cat died in late December due to what Iran's Environmental Protection Organization described as Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV).
