Shut Down China’s Tiger Farms

Target: Xi JinPing, The President of the People’s Republic of China

Goal: Shut down China’s cramped tiger farms and stop the sale of tiger parts

A recent undercover study has found that the skins of tigers are being openly sold with full state approval in China. This is coming into light despite China signing international agreements forbidding the sale and trade of tiger parts. The parts are coming from tigers that are bred in cramped and dirty “tiger farms”. The farms work as a zoo and they charge admissions to come see the tigers do tricks for the public.

The tigers are often emaciated and malnourished, and are bred in large numbers for profit. The tigers are then sold for their skin and bones and used to make rugs, wine, and medicine. The Environmental Investigation Agency has said that more than 5,000 tigers are bred in farms and their skins are mostly sold for luxury home decor. Tiger parts are so popular because it is a huge status symbol in China. At this rate, tigers will become extinct within the next two decades.

Investigators report that the farms irrefutably deny the allegations that the tigers are being sold for parts and insist that the organization is just a zoo. Please sign this petition to stop the breeding of tigers in farms and zoos and make China recognize the agreement that they signed.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Xi JinPing, President of the People’s Republic of China,

China had previously signed international agreements banning the sale and trade of tiger parts. Sadly it has been reported that China has been breeding tigers in so-called tiger farms and selling their parts. Undercover investigators have come upon these tiger farms/zoos that breed tigers and kill them for profit. Please stop breeding these majestic animals for trade. Tigers are already on the verge of extinction and the rate will just keep growing if you don’t stop this practice of “breeding for trade”.

Tigers are important for the eco-system, and killing them for profit will leave a huge devastating impact on local communities, habitats, as well as other animals. If you continue to let these farms and zoos operate, it will just promote the intrusion of poachers and hunters from other countries. Please make a change to your wildlife protection laws and abide by the agreements that you have formally set.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Combine this with the worst of the worst torture practices, bear bile farming and you have a nation that should be boycotted and even have an embargo against it until such acts are stopped. I still have nightmares about it.
