Russian forests hide a lot. Bears on roads? Yeah, it happens sometimes, but who can be surprised with a grizzly? But Russian forests are vast and they have bigger surprises. A tiger, for example. Yeah, it can easily come out in daytime right on a road and it doesn't care about all these cars and people around.
P.S. Nope, it didn't escape from a ZOO or a circus, it's the real Siberian tiger, wild and free, walking near the roads.
