Trade in big cats like tigers may be illegal around the world, but that doesn't stop the animals and their parts from winding up on the wildlife black market. Just 3,500 or so wild tigers live today, but since 2000 the carcasses and skins

What a surprise! And it's not covert. They flaunt a blatant disregard for animals and their survival and well-being. Big cats, sharks, dogs and cats... I can't imagine what the people are forced to endure.

China has to start being serious
Actions speak louder than words
If people are going to start believing a nation that seems to care nothing about endangered animals I would prefer the Chinese become extinct before the animals do

Noted thanks

Is it economic power that allows China to get away with literal murder? Is the world so indebted to this country that not even the US will take a UN stand against them?

What a backwards country to encourage the belief in snake oil and quackery.

Why am I not surprised. The Chinese seem to be willing to do anything.
The rest of you have expressed it well.
Total disgust. Sigh.

China's demand for ivory, rhino horn, tiger bone etc is outrageous....they should be ashamed of what they are doing to so many animal species, and some not even from their own country. They are decimating other counties' animal populations...............SHAME ON CHINA

Parts of China are still living in the Ming Dynasty, with their potions, medicines, treatments. They do not have the right to break the law or try to switch the wording to justify what they are doing to animals.

I do not believe China can control its black market and everything seems to be excused in the name of tradition, unfortunately. But it has to be stopped! Thanks Cher
