    If you’re referring to the events that put this tiger species in danger, it started with the Russian Civil War, which lasted a few years after the revolution of 1917. Both armies were killing off tigers in the area around Vladivostok. By 1935, tigers were already gone from their northern and Western range. Building railroads cut off the eastern population in Manchuria. Before that, the tigers’ range actually spread all the way through Western and Central Asia. This western population was called the Caspian tiger, and is believed to have completely disappeared by late 1950’s, in part due to Soviet government’s policy of hunting them in the areas of land reclamation projects. As for official classification, the IUCN red list includes tigers as endangered species since 1986.
