Because C2NN posting was not working correctly, I may have a second source for this story posted as well. Sad news regardless of whether you read the story from MSN or the Times of India. I attempted the second source posting as I was convinced this posting had not been successful.

Yeah real "high security" isn't it? Wankers. And now another precious tiger is gone. To make more "asian medicinal" crap no doubt. This is scandalous!
