Questionable zoos and a dwindling population mean getting up close to these majestic beasts is no easy -- or morally acceptable -- feat

The correct term is "Tigers are not pets" too much love for this animal so magical, leads to the existence of parks where tourists only see tigers more docile cats, but in reality there are hidden trade of tiger meat; then the man's devastating nature also does the rest, by destroying the habitat.
I hope that both India and Thailand can not understand that the existence of tigers is a great reason to visit for tourists and if this "ecological tourism" will become even more
So these nations will have more tourists
thx u Cher

That link was hard to open! These tourists are as much to blame as the monsters who torture and kill these poor innocent defenseless animals! They should be kidnapped and torture that way for at least one full day! Human beings are so evil and stupid that most if not all of them would soon forget after being back to their lives but at least they would of been through the same treatments for a short period of time! I would love to be able to donate to at least one organisation that helps tigers and other wild animals but I can't right now!

These poor animals. When will people ever learn to leave them ALONE. Let them be wild and do what tigers are supposed to do. Leave them in there own habitat, where they are meant to be. STOP, trying to tame them. People will never learn to stay away from wild animals!!!!!!!!

So many humans are DISGUSTING!!!!!! These are some of the most amazing animals on the planet and because so many humans are TOTALLY IGNORANT, GREEDY, and EVIL, they are almost extinct in the wild. They are meant to roam free in vast forests with no fear of being killed. They are meant to be the true king of the jungle. Too many people on the planet!!!!

Thanks for the post.

Are these tourists so stupid and gullible that they think these animals are treated well in asia? Horrible.

This is a disgusting form of animal exploitation.
According to Hinduism/Buddism animals are not superior but manifestation of GOD!
hipocrits....they will end up in hell,since they are beleivers of it anyway...they will be re incarnated as tigers and the tigers as humans who will not forget! i know iam dreaming...

I agree with Elena. This is animal exploitation and not acceptable.
