Tiger bone wine is fuelling illegal wildlife trade

A growing number of tiger farms in Asia is fuelling an illegal wildlife trade, an ITV News investigation has found.  The population of captive tigers is now double the number of wild tigers in the whole world.  Animal campaigners such as the WWF and Environmental Investigation Agency believe an international commercial trade in parts and derivatives from tigers is fulling the growth in tiger farms. The sale of tiger bone wine was banned in China in 1993 - but a tiger park we visited this month in Harbin is claiming to sell such a product.  See link below to read the ITV News investigation report.
