The Last Tigers of Hong Kong

2022-05-28

On "Hong Kong Heritage" John Saeki talks to me about his new book on the history of South China tigers in Hong Kong - where they roamed intermittently until at least the 1950s. There's the famous attacks in 1915 and the tiger at the Stanley Camp in 1942, but also the stories of naturalists, missionary and tiger hunter Harry Caldwell, and the villagers of the New Territories who would bang gongs to ward off these powerful predators as they cut grass on the hillsides.
