Tiger Poaching-Threat looms large over Kerala

Kerala, home to India’s best managed Wildlife reserve (Periyar Tiger Reserve), is being targeted by tiger poachers. Poachers killed 4 tigers this year in Kerala, and this has sent alarm bells ringing. Authorities are leaving no stone unturned to nip this threat. Detailed investigations are going on to unravel the nexus of the arrested poachers.

Tiger poaching is becoming an international menace. International community has to step in and assert. Countries like China who are laggards in conservation has to be requsted, cajoled and brwbeaten to fall in line.Strenghthening local protection measures should be taken up on a war footing.
