    Having quoted one, then along comes another:

    The tiger next door: America’s backyard big cats

    https://www.theguardian.com/global/...medium=&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1573376166


    It says:

    "An oft-quoted statistic is that there are more tigers in American back yards than there are left in the wild. According to the US Fish & Wildlife Service, there are between 3,200 and 3,500 tigers remaining in the wild globally. By some estimates there are 5,000 in captivity in the US, though there might be more."

    Who would have known?

    Oi! Fake News!
    I saw this, and in fact the original report indicates that it was hands and not arms. He severed them in order to destroy the fingerprints, which is quaintly reminiscent of the forensically embryonic days of Holmes, silly man needs to learn some science.
    The world press have leaped on the excitement of the notion of arms in his bag, but in fact the Russian word for hands and arms is the same.
    Additionally, even if the English speaking press knew that "hands" was the original story, the headline reads somewhat differently
    "Woman's hands found in backpack of Russian professor".
    This just reads like a commonplace incidence of pick-pocketing on the Tube.

    Interesting, but this report says 'arms' too - and that he's admitted it:

    Why are you spamming this across multiple threads?

    Incidentally, these people of Russian birth are said to be British citizens, so they are as entitled to donate to party funds as anyone else.
