This year is the year of the tiger. Tigers are greatly feared and respected in the Chinese culture. In ancient China, wild tigers abound. Lots of classic Chinese novels contain stories of heroes fighting wild tigers. Wu Song (武松)from the famous Chinese novel 'Outlaws of the Marsh" killed a tiger with his bare hands.
