The Daily Beast - Tiger Snowball Fight - January 26, 2013
Sumatran tiger, Daseep, couldn't resist playing snowball with keepers at Dudley Zoological Gardens.
DZG Head of Media and Communications, Jill Hitchman, said despite the species originating from the tropical rainforests of an Indonesian island, the two year-old tigress adored recent snowfalls that had covered her enclosure.
She said: "This is the first heavy snow Daseep has seen and keepers thought she would stay cosy in her heated den, but she couldn't wait to explore.
"Keepers built her a snowman, which she demolished in minutes, then spent yesterday afternoon throwing snowballs which she absolutely loved catching with her paws."
