that tiger went tiger

Some years ago I was on a kick where I would ask people: polar bear vs. Siberian tiger - who would win?

Virtually everybody says "polar bear" which is ridiculous. A polar bear may outweigh a tiger, but tigers never shy away from larger prey. And as the video clip above demonstrates, tigers - unlike polar bears - are lighting fast and can leap 12 feet off the ground, which means they could easily take down a polar bear even if it was standing on its hind legs.

Take the poll - warning snappoll is sloooowwww....

Tiger vs. Bear
Siberian tiger vs. polar bear - who would win?
Too close to call
