Tigers Killed for their Body Parts
One of the main reasons for tigers being endangered is that some people believe that medicine made from tiger parts is very magical.
They are also killed for their fur for floor rugs or clothing.
It is illegal to kill tigers.
There are modern medicines that do the same, or better, job than traditional medicines made from tiger parts... it is not necessary to kill tigers for medicine.
