The cats might not get along. Tigers are lonely so they only get together to mate and afterwards they each go their own way. Because of the space we can only have one tiger couple and it all depends on if they get along. Luckily Shitara and Albert got along very well and the results are the four cubs."

What we do is exchange them with other zoos for other animals because we can't bring in another tiger since we already have a couple. We place them somewhere where there aren't any (tigers) and where they'll have space." VARIOUS OF CUBS PLAYING AMONGST THEMSELVES VISITORS LOOKING AT THE CUBS CUBS IN THEIR SHED

- Story Text: Russia will allow the U.S. Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland to visit for talks despite having previously blacklisted her, after Washington agreed to lift a similar restriction placed on a Russian citizen, Moscow said on Sunday (October 10).
The U.S. official, who is expected in Moscow from Oct. 11 to 13, visits at a time when political ties between the countries are badly strained. She will meet senior officials to discuss bilateral, regional and global issues, the State Department has said.
"She was actually on our sanctions lists that mean that a person cannot cross the border," Maria Zakharova, Russia's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, was quoted as saying by RIA news agency.
"They (the U.S.) included Russian representatives and foreign policy experts on their sanctions lists. So in this case, the question was resolved on a parity basis. Yes, she will be in Russia," she was quoted as saying.
Zakhrova later clarified to the Govorit Moskva radio station that one Russian citizen had been removed from the U.S. sanctions list. She did not disclose the person's name.
The United States has imposed an array of sanctions on Russia. Relations between Moscow and Washington sank to post-Cold War lows in 2014 after Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine, and they remain strained over a range of other issues.
