The controversial south China tiger photographs by farmer Zhou Zhenglong were fake, according to sources at a press conference of the Shanxi Provincial government on 29 Jun.

Zhou, a 53-year-old from the Zhenping county of Shaanxi who claimed to have photographed the tiger with a digital camera on the afternoon of Oct. 3 last year, was suspected of grift and arrested.

His tiger photos, first published on Oct. 12, had been used by the Provincial Forestry Department as proof that the rare tiger still existed in the wild at a press conference. The department awarded Zhou a 20,000 yuan (2,915 U.S. dollars) reward.

But Internet users accused Zhou of making the tiger images with digital software, and local authorities of approving the photos to bolster tourism.

That is a staggered success for the South China tiger matter, after all the flat cat photo has already existed nearly 9 months as approved “true photos”.

My first thought was that it is nice to learn that some farmers are doing well enough that they can afford digital cameras and have the spare time to go tiger hunting (or working in a computer "dark room" as it turns out!)

It has always been possible to make fake photos and these days it is even easier. Perhaps the photos should have been inspected more closely when they were submitted.

But I think the long-term result will be that people will remember that the Shaanxi Provincial government did the right thing when the truth became known.
