Bengal Tigers face extinction
The Tiger is a endangered species and faces a possible extinction,experts say that there are only 3200 wild tigers left in the world. And that includes all 6 remaining subspecies.
We have already lost three subspecies of the big Asian cat in the last 70 years.
the Bali, Javan, and Caspian are gone forever. extinct.
My personal favorite species of tiger is the Bengal Tiger
I have always been fascinated with the bengal tiger, I don't know if it was because of Tony the tiger from the Kellogg's cereal commercials remember, they're grrrreeeeeeattt. or from the time I saw a white bengal tiger in Las Vegas, I have always loved tIgers.
I would love to see one live in its natural habitat but they only exist in the wild in Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar and Nepal. India is home to the largest population.
But they have tiger farms where they are held in captivity in China.
I wouldn't want to see them there, I have read that they are underfed and you can see their ribs sticking out from lack of a proper diet.
I takes a bunch of protein to satisfy a tigers needs.
I hear they feed them live chickens, the tiger eats feather and all.
I understand that the chinese people have used tiger parts for medicinal purposes for around 2 thousand years,even though I cannot find any scientific data that says that tiger meat is good for you or that tiger bone wine is good for you.
Tiger bone wine is supposed to
- help you maintain balance in your body
- take away pain
- improve your sex life
- Iprove your vision
My problem is where is the scientific evidence it does anything, and it is illegal in China.
I did hear a joke that in China the only thing with four legs they won't eat is a table.
In China they eat
- many other things I couldn't eat.
Can you imagine this, they will kill a puppy and butcher it,right in front of you and cook it for you to eat.
I don't want to offend anyone but the thought of that just makes me sick.
They also have shops where they sell herbs and medicinal wines of all kind with many exotic animals, that basically will cure anything. But again where is the scientific proof.
The Chinese are literally eating tiger into extiction,if it stays like it is now all tigers will be extinct by the year 2023.
What really bothers me is that the Chinese government allows them to breed the tigers in these tiger farms with the idea being that they will release them back into the wild.
That won't work
- No tiger has been released from captivity from a tiger farm in China.
- After being in cages eating chickens they won't be able to stalk their game
- The system is set up to fail.
Tiger farms are really just for money, they wait for the tigers to die and then they sell the parts illegally,
They have daily shows that advertise the illegal tiger bone wine. Sick
What is a tiger worth on the black market?
- Its bones go for $100.000.00 USA dollars
- Its head and skins as a rug sells for $10.000.00 USA dollars
- every part is sold including
- everything...nothing is wasted
They are also in captivity in the USA
- They are raised by breeders
- Private owners
A Tiger can kill you quickly and shouldn't be taken for granted.
They are a wild creature and beong in their natural habitat,but that won't happen until the world gets together and makes real rules,that they will enforce to protect these awesome animals.
I don't mind seeing a tiger in a zoo where they are getting the proper diet but truly they belong in the wild.
here are a few ideas
- go after poachers
- put them in jail where they belong
- enorce your laws China
- truly do what you say you planned on let the tigers out
- Feed the tigers better while they are in captivity
- modernize medicine in China
- or at-least show proof that tiger bones are beneficial to humans.
The year 2023 is fast approaching do you think that tiger will become extinct?
