Rescind the generic tiger exemption: Stop tiger breeding for the survival of the tiger in the wild

There is an enormous illegal trade in tiger parts and products made from their parts, like tiger bone wine and alleged “traditional” medicines and aphrodisiacs. We have no way to know how many of the thousands of tigers that languish in private hands in the U.S. in squalid conditions are being killed and sold into this very lucrative illegal trade.

All tigers bred outside of AZA accredited zoos are generic.  Lack of reporting makes it very easy to kill a tiger and sell its parts without detection. Increasing the supply of these tiger products builds the market for them and creates greater and greater incentives for poachers to kill the rapidly shrinking population of wild tigers.

To save the tiger from extinction in the wild we must control and track their breeding in the U.S. to be sure our tigers are not going into the illegal trade.
