Watch this rare footage which captures the moment a three-year-old Amur tiger is released into the wild in Russia

Caught scrounging around in Russia's Khabarovsky province, Uporny – which means "stubborn" in Russian — a 3-year-old Amur tiger, was given a second chance.

Instead of bringing him into captivity, the Russian government decided to rerelease the rebellious tiger back into the wild where he belonged.

Amur tigers are rare — Uporny is one of only 450 left in the world. After getting him a veterinary examination and a tracking device, rescuers chose a site near Anyuisky National Park for Uporny's release.

A female Amur tiger is believed to live nearby, and could become a mate for Uporny in his new life.

Seeing the tiger return to the wild is truly a stunning sight. (Source)
