Our nation's symbol of
I have been browsing through the web to research material for my Tiger Blogfest entry and am horrified by what I found. I was looking for information on the dwindling population of our Malayan Tiger and found that no amount of facts, stats and information will ever be able to send a stronger message than a few horrifying photographs.
I will not post these pictures here.
They are too heartbreaking.
Here's a link to the images I've found.
Or you could just Google 'Tiger poaching' or 'Tiger parts'
These images are graphic.
Do not view if you have a weak heart.
