Survival of the Cutest

A friend of mine is trying to save the last few hundred of the Siberian tigers. Unfortunately for both him and the tigers, the cub depicted in his brochure is some sort of mutant beast, perhaps the victim of an old Soviet nuclear experiment that went terribly wrong.

People only like to save cute animals. In a century or two, everything on the planet will be either adorable or extinct. (I feel confident in making such a prediction: since I won't be around then I'm in no danger of being refuted.)
