TIGERS may be wiped out in the wild and consigned to the dustbin of history within just 10 years, a charity claims.
Born Free says the sudden disappearance of the big cats will come after a 96 per cent fall in population in the past 100 years.
A pitiful 4,000 are thought to prowl wild because of poachers who stalk them in their destroyed habitats in India.
Howard Jones, CEO of Sussex based Born Free, said: “Tigers need our intervention more than ever due to countless threats including human-wildlife conflict.
“[That includes] poaching for their body parts for traditional 'medicine'; and habitat loss due to deforestation and chaotic or ill-considered rural development.
“It's unimaginable to think of a world without tigers but unless we act now, the consequences could be dire.
“We urgently need support for our Living with Tigers initiative so we can encourage human-wildlife co-existence through education and by involving the local community in a number of unique initiatives to improve their livelihoods.”

cybernaut: Well, it can be a little hard for me to come here sometimes because of how negative things can get here. I realize there's much to be negative about, but it's still hard for me all the same.
