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.

      INCREASING AND NORMALIZING MARKET DEMAND AND SUPPLY OF TIGER PARTS BUILDS A BIGGER MARKET FOR TIGER PARTS FROM OUR OWN DOMESTIC SUPPLY OF GENERIC TIGERS, CREATING A DEATH SPIRAL FOR THE WILD TIGER, BECAUSE INCREASING MARKET DEMAND AND SUPPLY OF TIGER PARTS MAKES EVERY SURVIVING WILD TIGER EVER MORE VALUABLE TO POACHERS, WHICH STIMULATES EVER MORE POACHERS TO KILL EVEN MORE WILD TIGERS, WHICH CAN THEN BE SOLD UNDETECTED INTO THE LARGER MARKET. I AGREE WITH THIS PETITION.

      野生のトラの生存のために虎の繁殖を停止します。一般的な虎の免除を取り消す

      そこに虎骨酒のような彼らの部品から作られたトラの部品や製品の巨大な違法取引は、であり、「伝統的な」薬や媚薬を主張した。我々は、この非常に有利な違法取引に殺害され、販売されてごみごみ条件に米国で民間の手で苦しい生活を送るタイガースの何千ものいくつかを知る方法がありません。

      AZA公認動物園の外で飼育され、すべてのトラは一般的なもの。報告の欠如は、虎を殺し、検知されないまま、その部品を販売することが非常に容易になります。これらのトラの製品の供給を増加させると、彼らのための市場を構築し、密猟者が野生のトラの急速人口減少を殺すためにますます大きなインセンティブを作成します。

      野生で絶滅からトラを救うために私たちはタイガースが違法取引に入っていないことを確認するために、米国で繁殖を制御し、追跡する必要があります。

      Pain is pain, and the importance of preventing unnecessary pain and suffering does not diminish because the being that suffers is not a member of our own species.
