In September 2008, Vladimir Putin met a rare Amur tiger. After a now infamously sexy photo shoot with said tiger, he put a collar with a tracking device on it. He did the same after he met Dasha the white whale on a trip to the Sea of Okhotsk last summer. Ditto the polar bear, which Putin met this April in Franz Josef Land, way up at the top of the globe.
Now, you can follow the migrations of Dasha, the tiger, and the polar bear on the Prime Minister’s website, which, incidentally, is where you can glimpse the many cameras vigilantly monitoring the rebuilding of houses eaten up by the flames earlier this month.
