Press fail, Putin fail, News at 11

Putin is in the news now for doing something that sounds like Kim Jong-il-esque propaganda. However, the article has an interesting ambiguous modifier in it:

He helped measure the Amur tiger's incisors before placing a satellite transmitter around the neck of the beast, which can weigh up to 450 kg (1,000 lb) and measure around ten feet from nose to the tip of the tail.

Who else read that as one heavy damned satellite transmitter?
