I live in Gozo and I never met this Asian migrant. Perhaps the tourist board can inform you about it. The only Asians I know come from Pakistan. Also Tigers are extremely seldom in Gozo.

Ha Ha! Many thanks Gozoman for your reply however I refer to this link https://timesofmalta.com/articles/view/Bite-of-the-Asian-Tiger.465468. My wife was very badly bitten then but we love coming to what we consider our second home.
Also would like to take the time to thank you for all your tips and info on Gozo which I have referred to many times in the past.
