A Tiger Called Broken Tail
Testament eines Tigers
Irish cameraman Colin Stafford-Johnson spent almost 600 days filming Broken Tail & his family for some of the finest tiger documentaries ever made. Broken Tail was the most charismatic tiger cub he'd ever seen in Ranthambhore, one of India's premier wild tiger reserves. Impossibly cute, he gamboled and posed for Colin's camera through the first years of his life. But then, without warning, Broken Tail disappeared. He abandoned his sanctuary and went on the run, disappearing into the wilds of rural India for almost a year. On a spectacular odyssey across Rajasthan, Colin travels by horseback retracing Broken Tail's last journey, gathering clues as to his route and behaviour, exploring why he abandoned his home, and above all: revealing important truths about India's last wild tigers.
