People put up sticker on your cars. Printouts on your desks. E-mail everyone you know. Start chain letters (this one will be worth the trouble forwarding to 12, 24 or any number of people).

What has happened to the tiger is unforgivable. Please lets wake everyone up. The government will continue doing nothing.

I think the First Tiger he 's referring to is the our National Animal & the Second 1 is the Tiger of Our rivers (Mahseer)

If I am right, it’s Not too late to save Both, since out of 7000 odd wild tigers found in the wild ,4000 odd is in India.

But what happened in the Sariska Tiger Reserve, is unforgivable ,Not even a single tiger is left there, as i had visited that place myself, the shocking news is that the poaching was done with the Reserve officials knowledge :? & they have No Idea where the tigers have gone :roll:

Bops
The other tiger is the Mahseer. The roots of the name are supposed to have come from "maha' meaning big or great and "Seer' meaning head - Big Head. The other route is 'maha' and 'sher' meaning tiger (obviously because of its colouring.

The kind of number thrown up by the study shows a very quick end for the four legged one. Unfortunately there is no study on the decline of the mahseer.

Conditions are bad - by the way things are going the only place we will see tigers are probable in TV or in photos - Corruption has taken its toll here and will continue to do so unless stern actions are taken - Bops cant we all sign a petition (E or Paper) and send it to the relevant authorities to voice our concern and also to show that we have to do something before its too late.

An E-petition will be a good idea.
