Indian tiger population continues to drop

I’m tempted to say, “…like a falling cat.” But that would be just gallows humor.

The Guardian has the article:

  • In five years, the tiger population has fallen to 1,400, less than half the previous estimate.
  • Poachers have wiped out the tigers in some reserves.
  • Other reserves suffer from habitat destruction as villages crowd forests.
  • Experts say that not enough is being done to fight poachers.
  • Laws against selling tiges’ body parts are being openly flouted.
  • In a few years it will be too late.
