Smt. Jayanthi Natarajan: India needs to reinforce laws to protect animals!

In the last 3 years (2009 - 2011), 75 known cases of tiger poaching were accounted by the WPSI (Wildiflife Protection Society of India). WPSI also has records of a large number of tigers that were "found dead". Without verification of poaching evidence these deaths have not been included in the above figures. To reach an estimate of the magnitude of the poaching of tigers in India, it may be interesting to note that the Customs authorities multiply known offences by ten to estimate the size of an illegal trade.

The illicit demand for bones from wild tigers for use in traditional oriental medicine, coupled with the international trade in tiger skins, continues to be the main reason for the unrelenting poaching pressure on tigers in India. There is virtually no demand for either bones or skins of tigers within India.

India needs to create harsher penalties to act as a deterrent against poachers.
