Tigers like lions are the most feared of all animals...
these wonderful creatures have been hunted by humans,
thrown in cages or slaughtered for their expensive furs;
why shouldn't they roam into their beloved wilderness?
There was a time in History when Africans were captured like them
and boarded on ships to be sold in the Americas to white masters...
think for a minute: don't humans and animals feel the same pain
when they are beaten, cut or even killed....hear their moans!
If the fate of tigers is a doomed existence, should we stand back
and watch them suffer and slowly die while they yearn
for their beloved wilderness where they can be completely free...
although they'll be fearing the greedy hunters who have no mercy;
didn't their ascentors walk side by side with Adam and Eve in a perfect
and harmonious place called the Garden of Eden?
