According to a zoo employee, the tiger makes such sounds not out of pain but just to get attention. “Once he was playfighting with his brothers and sisters and tried to get the attention of Bagira, his mum. Over time he developed this singing, he was very insistent on it,” said Pavel Reznichenko, the deputy director of the zoo’s collection.
