Zoo’s tiger says more winter ahead

Zoo’s tiger says more winter ahead

Khuntami, a 400-pound Siberian tiger at the Henry Doorly Zoo, predicted this morning that the Midlands will have six more weeks of winter.

The tiger made his prediction based on appetite. Zoo workers had set out two containers of meat for him — one green to represent spring and one white to represent winter.

The cat chose the white one.

The tiger, which is about 16 years old, has been at the Omaha zoo since a cub and is the only wild-caught Siberian tiger in captivity.

More winter was a popular forecast this morning.

In Pennsylvania, the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, predicting the already long winter will last for six more weeks.
