I don't believe that these Tigers got this from nothing, I believe that someone is injecting them with the disease, just to do wrong to them, there are alot of evil people in the world!!

Tragic. I hope this get this under control. Once these animals are gone, they are gone forever and humans have driven them to the edge of extinction. This little shove my do the species in.
