We should be VERY concerned, this a big red flag about the health and Eco-balance of the planet. For the intellect that humans have they sure are not good at accepting facts that demand a change in behavior.

Thats terrible these beautiful creatures will be gone because of greedy thoughtless cruel humans Somebody should have started caring a long time ago Its getting too late now for a lot of these animals so more must be done by leaders working together to sort out the problems that are causing all these endangered animals to disappear Its strange to me if you have an historical building it becomes known as a listed building and woe betide anyone that tries to do anything to it Why are nt they doing the same for the endangered animals and woe betide anyone that touches them Does not make sense but then humans dont make any sense anymore

This news just makes me cry! Thank you, Cher! Perhaps, if we help sound the warning, people will help to save them. I pray this is true! (n, p, t)

Poachers who kill tigers should be deboned and skinned alive.

We have to do something. 500 isn't enough to keep a good strong gene pool going.

Read and noted with much sadness. But also hope that WWF can turn around the villagers.

500 tigers left in the wild does not constitute a balance. Are we just to stupid to survive by leaving nature's balance in balance? If so our species will not last. There were so many wonderful comments here. I sent stars. TY Cher Noted, Tweeted, and Cried.

Heaven helps us. This made me cry like a baby. Please someone put an end to this insanity before tigers are extinct.

It's sad but hardly a surprise. The increasingly toxic human race is continuing and accelerating it's assault on the planet, on our own home ... how absurd..

Years ago Joe Walsh sang:

"We are living on a dying planet,
we're killing everything that's alive,
and anyone who ties to deny it
wears a tie
and gets paid to lie.

So I wrote these songs for a dying planet
I'm sorry but I'm telling the truth
and for everybody trying to save it,
these songs are for you ..."

They call me the Bad News Bear for a reason (LOL). Nobody wants to hear bad news, even when it's the truth I guess ...

Unfortunately this is not a surprise for me, the human race is the most aggressive and destructive species in the world!

Heartbreaking. I hope it just means 500 in the jungle and not throughout the world.
