    Tigers are my favorite animal. No other animal has such a powerful, mystical aura on such a global scale. It saddens me that people are still poaching them for the supposed medicinal powers of their body parts. I seen photos of tiger ranches where they are being raised in captivity for this purpose.

    I, too, am deeply saddened by the poaching and decimation of the tiger population. I signed this petition:
