Paws Up, Don't Shoot

How are Bengal Tigers being affected today
There are more Bengal tigers in zoos than there are in the wild due to endangerment from excessive hunting. There are currently less than 2,500 Bengal tigers out in the wild right now, and even on the endangered list, under protection, they might end up extinct if we don't act against the hunting of tigers for the worth of their beautiful pelts and bones, so we have less tigers in zoos, and more in their natural landscapes and habitats. Less artificial enclosures and more natural types.
Solutions for this problem
Oversee Hunting where Bengal tigers reside
If there were more restrictions on the hunting rights towards tigers, and a stricter rein on the access to Bengal tigers , the population if these magestic cats would increase, and we wouldn't lose another important part of the cat family.
