John Vaillant On The Story Of A Vengeful Tiger

John Vaillant, author of The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival, on the incredible story of a wounded tiger who stalked a man in the forests of Eastern Russia, seeking revenge. "In this case, this individual, Markov, an unemployed logger, shot this tiger at point blank range - that was determined later forensically. The tiger identified him."

On The Fearless Nature of Tigers:

"Tigers will run into gunfire, they will chase helicopters. They don't know fear in the way that we do. And this guy was crowding him, attacking him, threatening him."

John Vaillant is on the show tonight.
