Tiger Poaching

Yesterday I mentioned International Tiger Day. Today came news that Bangladeshi police in the Sundarbans mangrove forest killed six tiger poachers in a gunfight lasting 15 or 20 minutes. The police seized five guns and ammunition and three tiger pelts from animals killed not much more than a week ago. The population of rare Bengal tigers in the Sundarbans in south-east Bangladesh has slumped from 440 to 100 in a decade, due to poaching these endangered animals for their beautiful pelts (CLICK).
