BEAUMARIS ZOO -- DEATH OF TIGER.

Included in the animals in the Beau- mans Zoo presented by Miss Roberts to the City Council was a fine specimen of the marsupial wolf, or Tasmanian tiger, which was the pride of the collection. This tiger had been in splendid health and condition, but, unfortunately, con- tracted a chill during the recent spell of cold weather, and despite every effort of the Curator (Mr Reid), who called in the assistance of a medical prac- titioner, it died last evening of pneu- monia. As those tigers are now almost extinct, it is very doubtful whether the   loss can be made good. The Council would be glad if any person securing a specimen would place it under offer to them. Arrangements have been made to preserve the skin of the tiger, and to set up its Skeleton.
