Tuesday September 4, 2012, 3:07 am what took India so long to impose this ban? At one point they had 100,000 tigers roaming in the wild. Now they are down to only 1,700. This ban should have been imposed a loooooooonoooooooog time ago. Now those poor cats can go on and breed in private. Great story though!

if India can protect tigers, considering their attitude toward cattle, can we do less for our wolves?

we must continue to step up the pressure lest they face pressure from greedy corporates.
