India is under the spotlight in their protection to tigers.Their Minister was given by PETA the distinction of being man of the year in his efforts in protecting India's tigers. After reading this article, I question this honor.

One they are gone, they are gone forever. The government must crack down. Fence in the humans and let the animals roam.

Noted with great sorrow for the Tigers,. The United Nations needs to set up a task force to get rid of poachers.
Thank You Cher,.
