I wish that OUR sports stars would devote themselves to wildlife conservation and anti-cruelty, unlike the many here in the US highlighted for dog fighting and other wicked practices.

"At the start of the century, there were nearly 40,000 tigers in India. Today, that number has shrunk to 1,700 and we are losing at least one tiger a month. The rate at which the tiger is being hunted down is alarming," said Tendulkar, on the eve of India's first cricket Test against New Zealand."When I was growing up, I was told there was an animal called a dinosaur. Tomorrow, we would probably be talking about the tiger in a similar way to our future generations. Something needs to be done soon to stop the tiger from vanishing from our forests," he said. These are the words of famous Indian Cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar. I am really glad that one of the ICONS in India is standing up and speaking for a REAL cause. Thank you very much Sachin.
