To see a tiger in the wild these days is becoming near impossible. They are
becoming extinct. If, once upon a time, tigers roamed freely in the
thousands in different parts of Asia, today they number only a few hundred.
One of the major reasons why the tiger is losing the battle to stay alive is
because of the belief that the tiger is a valuable medicinal source. People
in Asia especially, believe that every single part of the tiger holds
medicinal properties. For example, they believe that the eye of the tiger
can improve our vision and their blood can make us strong. Because of this,
the tiger is hunted. Illegal hunters or poachers can fetch great sums of
money for a single tiger and they are not afraid to risk their lives in
search of the tigers in the wild.
Although tigers are strong, fierce animals, they cannot challenge the
might of the weapons used by the hunters which are too powerful and fast.
Park rangers stand by unable to do much against the hunters. Moreover, there
are too few rangers to patrol the large areas of land.
It would indeed be sad if one day, the only tiger we will ever see is the
stuffed one in the museum. If we continue buying tiger products and keeping
quiet about this whole issue, that day may come sooner than expected. I
certainly hope not.

Today, the tiger is becoming extinct because of many
reasons. In many Asian countries, tigers are hunted because people believe
that each part of the tiger has medicinal properties. Although fierce and
strong, the tiger cannot challenge the poachers' powerful weapons. Park
rangers too are helpless against the hunters and cannot patrol the vast
areas to protect the tigers. ( 59 words )
