MOSCOW, December 4 (RIA Novosti) - Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that he had sent one of his birthday presents, a female Siberian tiger cub, to a zoo in southern Russia.

"She's fine, in a zoo, among specialists," the prime minister said during his televised question and answer session with the public. "The zoo is in the Krasnodar Territory, and anyone can visit her [the tiger] there."

On October 10, Putin told journalists that he had been given the most unusual present in his life for his 56th birthday - a two-month-old endangered Siberian tiger cub.

He also said that a Siberian tiger could become the symbol of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit to be held in the Russian Far Eastern city of Vladivostok in 2012.
