Let's hope so.......I can't help but feel we've already reached the *too little, too late* stage though.

Excellent news. But I think they also need to focus on educating the Chinese people regarding traditional Chinese medicine that calls for tiger parts, cultural customs that involve tiger parts and buying products made of tiger parts. They need an overhaul on their entire belief system when it comes to their treatment of all animals.

Expected does not be it's been done.This article did not make me jump for joy.

"In 2010, 11 Siberian tigers died of malnutrition at a zoo in Shenyang, capital of northeast China's Liaoning Province".
"Monday marked the 4th Global Tiger Day. Statistics show that there are less than 500 Siberian tigers living the wild, and most of them live in Russia and China".
"The region is the ecological corridor for cross-border activities of Siberian tigers, in which hope lies for China to increase the number of the species in the wild," he said.

Let's hope they don't let these tigers die like those 11 - how horrible. Time will tell if the last remaining wild tigrs will be alive in a year. Reserving judgment.

Spoken by a Chinese is a fantastic thing also because they are the main cause of the extermination of tigers, their own and those fu***ng traditional medicine!!!!!
