Extinct Animals : Tiger
Formerly abundant in several Asian countries, tigers are now severely threatened. The Bengal tiger population of India has fallen to an estimated 40,000, and it is listed as an endangered species. The destruction of the tiger's forest habitat, trophy hunting, commercial hunting, and killing in order to protect domestic livestock have all been contributing factors in the decline of these magnificent animals.
Fifty-eight nations, including Canada, have approved a protective measure for all cats, which includes controlling the import, export, and use of such skins. Also, public opinion and the development of synthetic fur has slightly diminished the market for tiger skins.
