orld famous conservationist, John Varty, said a lion carcass would easily fetch $15 000, and with the scarcity of tigers - now estimated at 1 000 wild tigers and 45 000 in zoos across the world - it's little wonder an alternative is being sought

the earth is our shared home
as long as any being lives in fear , oppression, death at the hands of humans so shall humans live under the same threat
the pebble seems so small but its effects are far reaching
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love

Thank you for this story. Ignorance is still alive folks. The myths about animal body parts serving as herbal medicines and beneficial to human disfunctions has got to finally be dispelled.

This is despicable! How sad that the next generation won't be able to see a lion in the wild, or a tiger, or a rhino, or an elephant, or countless other creatures that humans have MURDERED!
