Tiger Cruelty
This is one of the many things that happen to tigers!!!!!


Yes! If the whole world stopped buying tiger furs and tigers parts, this tiger trade would end! THE REASON FOR TIGERS GOING EXTINCT IS BECAUSE OF THE TIGER TRADE!!!!! If buyers of tiger parts and furs stopped buying these ILLEGAL furs and bones, the sellers wouldn't be able to make a profit out of it and would slowly stop poaching tigers! The picture to the right shows whats really happening everyday all over the world!

Is it realy worth hunting tigers?

Is it really worth poaching tigers for the money and what can we do to help protect them? Tiger fur is worth a lot in the black market. One tiger pelt is worth $10,000!!!! For people who can't afford food to take care of their families that's a lot a money. Usually people who live near tigers are afraid of them and kill them when ever they appear. Tigers go wondering into small villages and farms when their home has been destroyed. Also when people hunt the animals tigers eat, tigers often

Why Do People Hunt Tigers?

Tigers are killed for body parts used in traditional medicines. The biggest threat facing Amur tigers is habitat loss due to logging. As they lose habitat, they lose prey, which means they sometimes turn to domestic livestock for food. This makes them unpopular with ranchers, who may shoot them as pests.

And tigers are killed for other reasons: they're hunted for their meat and skins as well as their bones, which are used in traditional Chinese medicine. Poaching of tigers has become an increasing problem in recent years, and it's taking a heavy toll on these mighty cats.

Most Siberian tigers are killed for export to China. As a member of CITES, the People's Republic of China (PRC) is (allegedly) committed to stopping the illegal trade of animals, such as tigers, and consequently the decline of their population. However, tiger products are in evidence in China. The State Council of the PRC however reported that existing stockpiles of tiger derivatives in China were obtained before China joined CITES.

Tigers are falling prey to unscrupulous hunters who are indiscriminately killing them for measly amounts on the behest of bigger fishes. The sad part is the protectors of tigers have become hand in glove with the poachers in killing one of the magnificent creations of GOD. The main reason behind killing the magnificent beast is two folds. The first being feeding the insatiable hunger of especially the Chinese in supplying tiger body parts for so called medicinal purpose. They are supposed to produce medicinal products out of the tigers.

The second part is many a degenerated souls put up a cowardly act of putting on tiger skin adorned garments to pump up their ego. In India many tigers have been poached to satisfy the Tibetans who wear them as traditional dresses. Recently His holiness the Dalai Lama has issued a decree against it. You may be shocked to know that recently in India one national tiger reserve (Sireska) was found to be devoid of tigers as all had been poached. To cut short at this rate of tiger culling our next generation may not be able to look at tigers in real life but in photos only. As some one said the tiger is hemorrhaging, unless we get up & do something positive about it it may be gone for ever.

They are only being killed illegally, Tigers are a protected species, and it is illegal to import any part of them into the UK, however, we in the UK have no say in what goes on in other countries, the ban is world wide and introduced by the UN but there are many curative properties attributed, but not correctly, to products from Tigers and other strong animals such as Lion and Bear. Many primitive cultures, and others not so primitive, believe that eating part of a tiger would mean the person absorbs some of its strength and courage.

Some people feel the fur is an exotic type of clothing. Or a fancy rug. What they don't realize is that they wouldn't be very happy if some animal used a person's skin in the same way (sorry if that's a bit graphic). This makes me especially sad, because I work with tigers, and they're my favorite animal.

What are people doing to help them and what can you do to help them????

There are many things people are doing to save the tiger. Organizations like WWF have adoptions that send money to build new wildlife sanctuaries that help protect the tigers. Still many tigers are dying. Its not only because of poaching. Deforestation and when people hunt the tigers food.

Tigers are amazing, beautiful animals full of strength, agility and stealth like abilities. So many tigers have been hunted it seems that people want to wipe out all tigers. About 500 tigers are killed each year which is way more than how many tigers kill people which is only 60 each year. It is estimated that there are only 5,000 tigers left in the wild due to habitat destruction, illegal hunting, and medicine making. Tigers live in the jungle and normally don't hurt or kill people, but when they are threatened by humans they attack trying to defend themselves. The most rarest tiger of all is the white tiger (below). You can only find then in captivity because poachers hunt white tigers more because of their lovely coat.
