    Default India Tiger Killed By Poachers Inside Itanagar Zoo

    India Tiger Killed By Poachers Inside Itanagar Zoo

    Subir Bhaumik - BBC News India

    Police in India's north-eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh are looking for a gang of poachers who entered a high-security zoo in the capital, Itanagar, and hacked a tiger to death.

    Officials have ordered an investigation into the incident, which happened on Monday night.

    The arrival of security guards prevented the poachers from carrying away the mutilated animal.

    The poaching and smuggling of tiger body parts is common across India.

    The animals are prized throughout East Asia in general and China in particular for the supposed medicinal value of their body parts.

    Tiger numbers have shrunk alarmingly in India in recent decades.

    A 2011 census counted about 1,700 tigers in the wild. A century ago there were estimated to be 100,000 tigers in India.

    The poachers tranquilised the six-year-old tigress before entering its enclosure and cutting it into six pieces, officials at the zoo say. A post-mortem of the animal has now been carried out.

    Zoo chief Zoram Dopum said that the poachers fled when three security guards who had gone for dinner returned to the area.

    There have been attempts at poaching animals in the zoo before, officials say.

    In February 2006, three tigers and a leopard were poisoned by unknown people. One tiger died, while the other two other animals survived.

    In June 2006, 30kg (66lb) of tiger parts - mainly bones and nails - were seized from a vehicle belonging to a police officer in Assam state.

    Was the tiger an alcoholic hoarder that was falling in love with Valerie Bertinelli?

    This sort of thing sickens me. When will these people learn that there is no scientific evidence whatsoever for the medicinal efficaciousness of tiger / elephant / rhino body-parts?

    And we call ourselves a civilised species.

    Reason doesn't necessarily drive demand. As long as there is demand, this will continue.

    I know - but it makes NO SENSE for there to be a demand for this stuff! It's sheer lunacy and it makes me SO BLOODY ANGRY!!!

    Yup, this is horrible, I would like to hack the poachers heads off and then the'd know how it feels and then see how they like it.

    Its all because of the stupid chinese weirdos that buy these into the nonesense that these animal parts will bring them good luck. ( not all of them ). They will kill a shark just to get the fins and leave the carcuss. Such a tragic waste, absolutly despicible.

    Bad week for animal lovers , so soon as the baby Panda died, and now this.

    The shark thing is even more hideous than your post suggests, H. The fins are hacked off and then the creature is thrown, STILL ALIVE and in agony, back into the sea where it either drowns or bleeds to death.

    I don't normally swear (at least on here!) but that is just FUCKING GROTESQUE.

    I'm not what anyone would consider an "animal lover", but this is horrible. I see documentaries on clubbing baby seals, sharks caught only for their fins, tigers being slaughtered in the name of Chinese voodoo and dolphins being killed by the hundreds in Japan. Could you imagine, just for a second, that you were an observer from another planet? We truly are barbarians in every sense of the word. It's embarrasing for me as a human being to have to admit that I am part of it.

    You should see "The Cove", Ace, if you haven't already. (It's a film about Japan's yearly dolphin slaughter - truly horrific). I could hardly bear to watch but was compelled to do so and, as a result, I signed up to the worldwide campaign against this barbaric practice.

    I warn you - you won't want to be eating your tea whilst viewing.

    Yup, some of these rotton bastards are truly disgraceful, and should be dealt with in the harshest possible manner if caught.

    Last year in my neck of the woods here, there was an incident of one of the worst cases of animal cruelty I had ever noticed in the news, and made me very upset. A dog sledding company in the ski town of Whistler B.C, had shot and killed over 50 beautiful healthy huskies just because the company no longer needed them after the peak ski season had ended and they didnt want to pay to feed and keep them. It was an adomination that still disturbs me today. The sick piece of human shit dug a hole, shot the dogs one by one and tossed them into the hole while many were still alive and wounded dying in agony on top of each other.

    Im not emotionally tough enough to deal with this type of thing, I dont care too much about people but love animals. Its best I avoid these kind of news stories and documentarys, as I just cant seem to handle it very well.

    Of course if a dog or two were sick or injured and in pain, I understand what needs to be done, but should be as quick and painless as possible. Many people make me sick the way they treat poor beautiful defenseless animals, I just cant stand it and want to do something about it somehow.

    Bless you, H. I completely relate to what you're saying. There are occasions where I find it hard to feel compassion for adults - but cruelty to kids and animals sends me over the edge.
