During this last week, leaders of 13 countries around the world met for a summit in St. Petersburg, Russia. But this summit was not about banking, or wars, or manufacturing. It didn't deal with dollars or deficits. It was about tigers.

Yes this appeared on Supreme Master Television a multi faith multi cultural free to air TV channel in LA that airs all over the globe, and Leonardo DiCaprio gave US1million to the cause, he flew to Russia and had trouble with 2 planes, but still got there, and attended the event

w/more tigers in the US than in the wild, the genetic diversity of the tiger is threatened

if a tiger's anatomy is so valuable, i wonder how much we can get for a poacher's penis ?

You just write "Noted" here, Leyna Stemle... and you SHOUT YOUR LUNGS OUT, because there's so much anger in my heart when I read such stories.
Mankind now knows that it needs world summits to Save the Planet (Kyoto, Copenhagen, and now Cancun...) but it's impossible for them to speak with a single voice.
Mankind has also created this "sub-summit" for the tigers. Though I of course always hope that something really positive shall come out of it, I'm afraid this shall only help to flatten Mr Putine's ego in the short term, but that in the long term, nothing will change about the tigers' fate.

Possibly the Chinese will buy a poacher's penis Lars. This may help the tigers there...
