Tell Tianjin Zoo to Stop Neglecting Starved Tiger!

China's Tianjin Zoo has been housing a sick tiger that has been reduced to skin and bones, as seen in disturbing photos from Netizen and Weibo (Netizen photo shown above). The zoo acknowledges that the tiger was diagnosed with a digestive disorder in 2001. They have been giving him medicine as treatment, but have otherwise seemed to neglect the tiger.

A local veterinary hospital released a statement of diagnosis, but there is no sign that zoo officials are caring for the tiger and making a serious attempt at rehabilitation. The zoo has recently faced criticism for forcing its elephants to perform unnatural handstands and martial arts tricks, so this wouldn't be their first case of animal cruelty.

Please sign the petition to urge the Tianjin Zoo to strengthen their efforts to help their starving tiger!
