The Problem

Once there was a tigress who lives in the protected jungle, raising her little cub. She is teaching her how to hunt, and live in the jungle, and spot potential dangers found in forests.

Mother tiger feeds her some milk as other tigresses were just hunting on their own. Her cub begins to know the world, and her mother. Father tiger watches over a tiger cub,–protecting her from threats.

Suddenly, there was a loud BANG! Father tiger has been killed by poachers for his bones and flesh. The tigress was startled by the loud bang. But she is doing what tigers do in nature. But the tiger cub was sad. She wanted her father back! But she can’t get her father back because, he was dead, or in some cases… slaughtered for meat. Maybe tiger burgers, and tiger steaks, or even tiger chops. Wait a minute! Who in the right mind to slaughter tigers for meat and their bones? This is kind of scary.

Her cub really likes her mother so much; she kept close with her for a long time,–until she is old enough to live in a forest. But she’s NOT ready to live in her own. Other tiger cubs were just safe with their mother tigresses.

However, the tigress is about to give her baby a ride on her back, but these poachers has grabbed the tigress’s cub from her side, the tigress launches an attack, but she was killed by the poachers who were stealing the tiger cub. Mother tigress was left in the jungle in pain when she was shot. Since tigers are solitary animals; they don’t have any social groups to get instant help.

She was forced to do tricks, and become props for selfies.
