This article sounds like a lot of talk, but I would like to see action on China's part.

Since China is responsible for most of the Tiger killings, they should do something to stop it. I really do not trust them.

I have to give them the benefit of the doubt until we find out otherwise.

I have to agree with Gloria and Michela. It's hard to trust China given their history, but I do believe we're starting to see some indications of a change in how they see their animals. Maybe because a younger, more open-minded, better educated population is coming into power that rejects the mythical and cultural traditions of the past?
Well, anyway, I hope so.

When I start to see China prosecuting people who are in possession of said parts or who are trading in them, then I will be hopeful.
