International poaching gang responsible for 37% of tiger deaths

Indian tigers may have bounced back from the brink of extinction with a healthy rise in population, but they are certainly not out of the woods as international poaching syndicates have moblilised their networks in the country to hunt the endangered animal.    Reports in April indicated that the big cat headcount had gone up to nearly 2,500, sparking celebrations. However, another set of data shows that poachers are responsible for about 37 per cent of tiger deaths in the country this year, with the number of killings revealing an upswing.  See link below to read the report in the Daily Mail
