The Tiger, a majestic animal in so many ways is on the brink of extinction due to the following: Humans illegally trading tiger body parts, humans poaching tigers for their coats, and humans destroying the tigers habitat.
I created this petition to be the voice for the tigers because the tigers cannot speak for themselves. Three tiger sub-species have been wiped out in the past 100 years these species are the Javan tiger, Caspian tiger and the Bali tiger. The illegal trade and poaching of this animal is way out of control.
Tiger body parts have been used in traditional medicines for over 1,000 years! It is a proven fact that no part of the tiger contains any sort of healing power and is a complete myth. To prove the illiteracy of this act I shall share with you what tiger body parts are used for. The tiger's brain is used to cure laziness and pimples.
The tiger's eyes are used for the treatment of epilepsy, tiger whiskers are used to treat tooth aches and are used as good luck charmes in amulets, tiger bone is used to treat the following: rhuematism, weakness, stiffness, paralysis, tiger bone is ground into powder before being transformed into pills, plasters and decotions containing herbs, tiger bone is also cut into segments and soaked in wine.
The tigers' tail is used to treat skin diesease, and the list continues. This shows you how horribly ridiculous this really is and nobody seems to be taking action to help save our remaining wild tigers!
There use to be over 100,000 wild tigers in the world and today there are fewer than 7,000. This animal does not deserve to disappear from the face of the earth, it's beauty, intelligence and power deserves to stay upon this earth until the world itself vanishes.
If and when the tiger does become extinct it will prove nothing, it will be a hard hit devestation and hurt so many people who love, cherish and care for this animal. God placed the tiger upon this earth and only god should have the right to take it away NOT MAN.
So please take a moment to sign this petition which will be sent to the Prime Minister of India. This man needs to realize how badly these animals are endangered and all of the signatures from caring animal lovers will prove to him that we do care what happens to this animal.
Thank you so very much!!
