In the first six months of 2013 more than 50 tigers in India were already dead. And it seems that most of them died in mysterious circumstances or because of a poacher's bullet. While conservationists and tiger lovers fight every day to save tigers,

QfA: " ... There was a time when tiger territory stretched from eastern Turkey to the Russian Far East, extending northward to Siberia and southward into Bali. In a relatively short period of time, humans have caused tigers to disappear from 93 per cent of their former habitat and destroyed most of their native forests. ..."
" ... The tigerís enemies are intent on killing every last one of the remaining tigers in the world. It is therefore not the animal but the animalís friends who have to show their mettle now. From students to teachers, farmers to industrialists, homemakers to policy makers, the tiger needs a conservationist in each one of us. By saying no to products made with tiger parts, playing a more pro-active role in creating safe habitats for the animal, saving forests from being cut down to make malls, mines and industries, and keeping a watch for men with ulterior motives, anyone can act as a shield to keep tigers out of harmís way."
Duly noted with sadness and with hope to at least be a fragment of a shield. Thank you Cher.

Sad commentary of modern times that ancient, unproven, and largely ridiculous folk medicine can kill entire species...the tiger isn't the only one disappearing because of unfounded Asian beliefs. They need to change or many animals will go extinct in a relatively short time. Need a way to change these out-dated ideas into a more modern, less deadly for animals, way of thinking.

I truly believe we have come to the point where India, either has been irresponsible,blind, in their responsibility to the welfare of the tiger. The WWF, and the the UN needs to oversee the proterction of the tiger.
Like China, India's government holds no value.

it's horrible what they're doing. Mixing conventional, pharmaceutical medicines with animal parts, selling it as the animal parts and hiding the fact it's actually medicine which is having an affect.

I can't understand how stupid some people are, this is the 21th century, using animal parts will not cure any illness, in the old days it did not work what make them think that it would work now!?

It goes without saying that what is happening is unbelievable, And must be stopped, but how, if no one wants to cooperate. After all of these beautiful animals are gone, what are these stupid medicine people going to do. without the parts, that they claim are medicine. They need to wake up now before they destroy all of these great cats. This Is Such A Tragedy......period.
