Stop the Poisoning of Thailand Tigers


Target:  Preecha Rengsomboonsuk, Thailand Minister of Natural Resources and Environment

Goal: Save tigers from being poisoned by poachers by enforcing stricter security

Huai Kha Khaeng, Thailand’s most well known animal sanctuary, has recently faced the latest violent methods of poaching tigers. News reports say that tigers are being infected with poison, put in traps, and taken away to be sold in nearby countries such as Laos and Vietnam. Specifically, the poachers are effectively tempting the tigers with fresh meat, which they line with pesticides. These incidents are threatening the species’ survival in Thailand.

The BBC reported that park officials discovered a couple of cubs close to the poisoned meat traps, but unfortunately it was too late to protect them. Reports also show that an elephant in an animal sanctuary was shot and poachers used the animal’s meat to attract even more tigers. Their poison has also lured in other animals such as wild dogs, cats, and small reptiles.

The problem of poaching is devastating for wild tigers in Thailand and other neighboring countries. Poachers’ tactics are becoming more extreme as they grow more desperate to meet the demands of the black market, whose customers see these animals as rare delicacies. Throughout Thailand, it is estimated that there are about two hundred wild tigers left. But sadly, poachers are quickly dropping that number and there needs to be something done to stop them. Please sign this petition to stop the poachers from killing any more tigers.


Dear Preecha Rengsomboonsuk,

There is a huge problem surrounding the wild tiger population of Thailand. Poachers have found ways into the Thailand sanctuaries and are poisoning the tigers with pesticide-laced meat of other animals. This problem needs to be addressed right away, before the tiger population becomes extinct. Security around the tiger sanctuary and other natural habitats of Thailand need to be implemented and strictly enforced. Poachers are getting away with killing these precious animals and not getting punished at all for their wrongdoings.

Because there are so few tigers left in the country, they need to be kept far away from dangerous people who depend on their meat to earn a living. We are in a battle to protect the last couple hundreds of tigers, and poachers are not making it easy. With the help of Thailand’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, we believe that these tigers can be saved before it’s too late.

    And so it goes.When will people learn, that these beautiful animals are a wonderful resource & yet they treat them as if we have factories that make all the animals they kill!
    We as mankind, has to be more understanding, & educate the greedy morons – once these creatures are gone, we can’t bring them back !
    This MUST stop & we can add our voices in that effort.

  2. These poachers are a national shame to Thailand. Please make every possible effort to stop them, and punish them to the fullest extent of the law.

    With the knowledge we have on endangered species, I’m beginning to think that the human race is totally hopeless. Apparently delicacies, and other uses for tiger parts, (along with other desirable animals ) is more important than respecting life.

  5. Shirley Moore says:

    What a shame– the human beings are killing off the best part of our world—the animals!! Soon there will be nothing left to kill but each other– especially since we are all ready doing that to!!

  6. Anne-Mari Gavin says:

    When is ALL this killing going to STOP??? Trigger happy people should take out their anger on lifeless targets. Stop the killing before there is nothing left on this earth to kill anymore!! I pray for the day when all guns and trigger happy people are wiped off the face of the earth!!

  7. I am stunned at the damage these stupid people are doing, who would want to hurt these beautiful animals, and what a terrible way to kill anything, I just wish these sickening twisted evil twxts just gave a moments thought, one day thanks to these scum bags there will be none of the magnificent animals left, but there will be millions of stupid ignorant people, I no which I would prefer, can they really not see what they are doing, obviously they do not care.
