Tigers are walking gold, worth a fortune on the black market. The demand is huge and prices continue to skyrocket. The cats are being slaughtered across India and their entire range, mostly for their bones and their magnificent pelts.

Poachers are the devil reincarnated. Without strict sentences-hefty fines and shoot to kill legislation--the poachers will keep thriving. And that pic with the full tiger body rugs are dreadful. Thx Cher

Until the poverty which drives poaching is eliminated....we'll continue to lose animals like tigers and MANY others.

Sorry Cher, the first sentence of the video made me turn it off:"People need to know how tigers are killed". No I don't; the tragedy that they are is enough.I don't want to witness the horror.

I agree, Pam. We're not talking about Cleveland or Rome or Sao Paolo. These are people that see a sure market ~ and know that a single tiger can sustain their family for a year.

Horrible stupid people that believe in the snake oil salesmen that claim tiger parts are "magical."

The cats are being slaughtered across India and their entire range, mostly for their bones and their magnificent pelts. (Related: “‘Cyberpoaching’ Feared as New Threat to Rare Wildlife“)I read that most of the bones go to China. There need to be much stricter laws , even as far as going in for life!, otherwise this can not be stopped. The poachers need to get some priority in the court system also. Thanks Cher,.
