Why them? They have suffered so much!! To me, tigers are the most beautiful creatures on earth, each hand-painted by God. :(

Oh NO...these poor beautiful creatures can not catch a break! They have had so many struggles to survive, most of them due to us, and now to hear that some mystery disease is taking the last of them. It just makes me want to cry! I will send healing thoughs out to them and hope that a larger power will help us save them from extinction. Thank you for letting us know Terry, it is sad, but something we all had to hear.

Oh terrible news. Such magnificent beasts. I hope this has nothing to do with limited breeding options, with so few of them left. Nature would not normally let such things happen, but there seems little chance for the animals to have the choices their ancestors had. Yet, to me, the article suggests that this could be a large, contributing, factor. Bloody man again. Thanks Lone, for telling us.
