This is an appeal to sign a petition for tigers. See details at;
There are something like just 3,200 tigers left and they are being killed still for Chinese medicine and other products. Some are literally starved to death to make a wine, and the sight of such a beautiful animal so emaciated is indeed tragic.

Please keep in mind that I am vegan for the animals first, the planet second and…Continue
