Underfed tiger: A medical officer from Cisarua-based Taman Safari Indonesia records the health progress of a 15-year-old female Sumatran tiger named Melani from Surabaya Zoo on Sept. 3. Due to poor management at the zoo, the tiger weighs only 50 kilograms, far below her ideal weight of 70 to 80 kilograms. The tiger's weight has increased by 8 kilograms lately since the zoo's management was taken over by the Ministry of Forestry. (JP/Indra Harsaputra, link)
