TELL CHINA TO STOP IGNORING BAN ON SALE OF TIGER BODY PARTS: CLOSE DOWN CHINA'S TIGER FARMS

Despite signing international agreements banning the trade in tiger parts, an undercover investigation has discovered that the skins of the big cats are being openly sold with state approval.

The remains come from animals bred in so-called tiger farms and cramped zoos.

The beautiful beasts are kept in pitiful conditions and so badly fed they are emaciated, the Environmental Investigation Agency has revealed.

Their skins are sold to decorate the homes of the elite and their bones are ground down to make “tonic” wines — despite these being banned.

Breeding for trade must stop: By Shruti Suresh of Environmental Investigation Agency

Any trade in tiger parts could have a significant impact on the number of wild tigers, that’s why any breeding for trade must stop.

Wild tigers are a vital factor in the health of their eco-system.

If you removed the ‘king of the jungle’ then their prey, such as deer, would flourish and impact on other plants and animals.

When you mess around with natural, centuries-old cycles the consequences will be devastating.

      I adore cats; they are an integral part of the beauty of the natural world. And I have been listening to the sad story of the harm done to tigers since I was young. It is time to change that narrative, and evolve out of the miserable rut we, as a species, have gotten stuck in and pulled all life with us. China can show the way to that enlightened consciousness, simply by living in accordance to its intellectual, religious, and philosophical history. It need not give in to the madness of a desacralized world.
