"The popularity of tiger parts has led Beijing to consider legalizing the trade in tiger parts–an action that would surely hasten the tiger’s path to extinction. China has done relatively little to enforce its 20-year-old ban on tiger parts, and smugglers and farmers alike frequently kill the rare animals for a large profit."

n + s. I hope with all my heart that sanctuaries and zoos are not the only places where tigers can live and be protected from poachers. They belong in the wild and should be able to be safe in their home. Thanx Cher!

China will do what they want, as Pam W. said "the Chinese aren't known for sensitivity to wildlife issues" or any animal issues. We should all boycott China and spread the word of their horrors, get them where it hurts, maybe then they'll pay attention. Noted and signed, thanks Cher..

S and N. The whole idea of gaining special strength, or anything special, from eating a particular animal, or, in the world of plants, for example, eating one because it looks like something resembling a human, is utter nonsense/superstition!

signed and noted. China, will be responsible, for many extinct animals in our life time due to there barbaric beliefs. What makes me so mad is that these animals that China Preys on belong to all of us, not just China.
Rhino's, Elephant, tigers, bears, seahorse, abalone, DOGS, CATS, the list goes on and on!
