Stop the Poisoning of Thailand Tigers

Target:  Preecha Rengsomboonsuk, Thailand Minister of Natural Resources and Environment

Goal: Save tigers from being poisoned by poachers by enforcing stricter security

Huai Kha Khaeng, Thailand’s most well known animal sanctuary, has recently faced the latest violent methods of poaching tigers. News reports say that tigers are being infected with poison, put in traps, and taken away to be sold in nearby countries such as Laos and Vietnam. Specifically, the poachers are effectively tempting the tigers with fresh meat, which they line with pesticides. These incidents are threatening the species’ survival in Thailand.

The BBC reported that park officials discovered a couple of cubs close to the poisoned meat traps, but unfortunately it was too late to protect them. Reports also show that an elephant in an animal sanctuary was shot and poachers used the animal’s meat to attract even more tigers. Their poison has also lured in other animals such as wild dogs, cats, and small reptiles.

The problem of poaching is devastating for wild tigers in Thailand and other neighboring countries. Poachers’ tactics are becoming more extreme as they grow more desperate to meet the demands of the black market, whose customers see these animals as rare delicacies. Throughout Thailand, it is estimated that there are about two hundred wild tigers left. But sadly, poachers are quickly dropping that number and there needs to be something done to stop them. Please sign this petition to stop the poachers from killing any more tigers.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Preecha Rengsomboonsuk,

There is a huge problem surrounding the wild tiger population of Thailand. Poachers have found ways into the Thailand sanctuaries and are poisoning the tigers with pesticide-laced meat of other animals. This problem needs to be addressed right away, before the tiger population becomes extinct. Security around the tiger sanctuary and other natural habitats of Thailand need to be implemented and strictly enforced. Poachers are getting away with killing these precious animals and not getting punished at all for their wrongdoings.

Because there are so few tigers left in the country, they need to be kept far away from dangerous people who depend on their meat to earn a living. We are in a battle to protect the last couple hundreds of tigers, and poachers are not making it easy. With the help of Thailand’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, we believe that these tigers can be saved before it’s too late.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Thai people don’t you remember the story of the Buddha when he stood up in front of Angulami who was going to kill him? Then the Buddha says to Angulami:”Can you cut a few leaves of the tree?” Those leaves were just hanging on
    top of them. Angulimal cut a small branch and gave it
    to Buddha. , Budha said “Good, half is done. Now do branch back again and then kill me. “ Angulimal said, “You must be mad! How can I join it back?”
    Buddha said, “But cutting a branch even a child can do. The real thing is joining it. Destruction is very easy, creation is the real thing. Are you a man or a child?”

  2. STOP!!!

  3. Protect tigers from poachers. A sanctuary is supposed to be a safe haven for wildlife, including these tigers. Stop the killing before they are all gone.

  4. Cannibalism is exotic and doesn’t destroy any endangered species. Poachers en brochette? Soylent Green?

    I am so sick of people in Asian countries destroying wildlife and the environment to make a few bucks. May the people who perpetuate these crimes suffer slow agonising deaths and their descendents have miserable unsuccessful lives. I’m a great believer in karma and hope they get what’s coming to them. It doesn’t help when Asian countries are all so corrupt. One tiger is worth a million people.

  6. Dana Lanza says:

  7. Sheila Jefferson says:

  10. “So many people insist they are against animal abuse, cruelty, suffering and the inhumane treatment of animals, yet they don’t understand they are actively engaging in and supporting egregious suffering, abuse, cruelty and inhumane treatment when they eat animals and their ‘by-products.’ If you are against cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment, then you go vegan. It’s just that simple.” – Sarah Kiser
