"Tigers from Europe are the best ones"

says L. Berousek, a big cat trader selling tigers to Asian buyers.

The commercial trade with captive tigers is legal and out of control throughout the EU. Whether performing in circus shows, bought as pets or killed and turned into traditional medicine, a lack of regulation in Europe is putting an almost extinct species at great risk. No authority or country knows how many tigers are currently kept in the European Union or what happens to them during their life or once they’re dead.

We’re fighting to change that. Help us ban the #RuthlessTrade.
