This tiger was killed about October 1968 by one of the gunners, SP4 Cipriano Rodriguez from Portland OR. "[Cipriano Rodriguez] was gunner flying back to Eagle in my LOH at about sundown. They were whizzing along following a road, down on the deck, when they came up on this tiger running along the same road. The night ambushes had been losing troops mysteriously for a couple of weeks but it stopped once this bad boy went down. Some guys went out and sling-loaded it back and one of the brass had the hide tanned and sent home. Great true story, and rare in that here's the picture to prove it!"
