Logic would dictate a simple solution, stop the boar hunts, make it illegal.

Dont take away the food We dont very often hear of this happening they always tell us that the tigers etc are too close to humans but they never tell us that the humans are taking away the animals food source
This needs to be banned

Does the tiger ever get a break no matter the country?

"If this continues to happen, the Sumatran Tigers will fearfully become extinct earlier than expected."

"Those involved in Tiger hunts & Illegal Trade in Tiger parts must be sentenced as severely as possible"

I don't understand hunters, if you really had guts you would go up to an animal and with your bare hands bring it down, not be a coward and use a gun, I guess hunters don't have B***s!!

Stop the hunts. The psychological profile of serial killers is consistent with the characteristic traits of hunters . . . . why would any country promote this type of behavior? Those that have no problem with killing animals develop a cold heart and will not feel any remorse killing a human.

Noted and read. I agree with Kit that the Wild Boar Hunts must be made illegal. It would be heart breaking to loose the precious tigers.
Thank You Cher.

I really hate seeing pics of dead tigers. We're trying to keep them ALIVE!! Why don't the hunters hunt each other and leave the boars AND TIGERS ALONE!! I agree with Kit too!!
