    It is sad to know that the tigers need an electronic passport, but is great to know that this will help in preserving them.

    Beautiful tigers. I hope the id program works – it would be tragic if these cats were to become extinct.l

    It is very wickedness, inhumanity and lack of character this type of smuggling.
