Every time I see the news like that it almost hurts. Seems like we live in the world that loses so many great animals.
Can you imagine the world without tigers?

Tigers could be extinct in 12 years if unprotected

Wild tigers could become extinct in 12 years if countries where they still roam fail to take quick action to protect their habitats and step up the fight against poaching...
They are talking about 13 countries that still have tiger populations: Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam and Russia.
The World Wildlife Fund and other experts say only about 3,200 tigers remain in the wild, a dramatic plunge from an estimated 100,000 a century ago.
Their habitat is being destroyed by forest cutting and construction, and they are a valuable trophy for poachers who want their skins and body parts prized in Chinese traditional medicine.

Here is the link to the full story.

Jim Corbett described the tiger as a large hearted gentleman. Tigers are considered one of the assets of our country. It is sad to know that they could become rare or even vanish if we do not save them.

It is really sorrowful. There are less than 1500 tigers left in India, and the recent news has shown deaths of a couple of tigers. Tiger is the national animal of India, but we are unable to save them.

I don't think it's true because I heard China has a foundation called Save China's Tigers (SCT) it's an international charitable foundation which aims to save tigers of China from extinction.

In Indonesia, we have Sumatra Tiger. They are in the brink of extinction. Their forest are shrinking as we chopped down woods to be exported to 'industrial countries'. People also hunt them and smuggle them for their fur and testicle (believed to be good for sexual activity). We've got Viagra, for cryin out loud! Leave them tigers alone!

It was a year and a half year old male which some idiot had acquired as a pet and then ( obviously ) couldn't handle so the Humane Society were trying to find a zoo for him. Unfortunately, though importing protected/rare animals is illegal, if they are born here there are few restrictions other than local exotic animal owning by-laws.

A couple of years ago some fool lost his cobra in his apartment building, so the other residents were evacuated for months, after which time it was assumed that the snake had died of cold. A real genius, this guy, he was also keeping a gaboon viper in his locker at work !
