Valdimir Putin saved a TV crew from being eaten up by a Siberian Tiger. The Russian prime minister was on a trip to a national park when a gigantic tiger escaped from a trap and charged a camera crew. Putin grabbed a tranquilizer gun and shot it.

Valdimir Putin is a former KGB spy who is known as a crack shot and loves his macho image.
Over in America, Vice President Cheney once shot a friend in the face, mistaking him for a bird.
