    Good artcile Debbie but a sad indictment of the ‘Tiger States’ leaders who appear to be uninterested and complacent over the continuing diminishing number of wild tigers. The Madhya Pradesh situation is truly appalling with evidence mounting over a conspiracy between the poachers and former forest officers at Panna. It appears that when people in authority within MP are quite clearly involved in poaching etc the State Government pulls rank and ensures that these officials are not brought before the courts of justice. The case of the Jhurjhura tigress at Bandhavgarh is yet another example of the MP State Government not wishing to see a CBI investigation as at least 2 forest officers and other influential individuals were clearly involved in the slaying of this tigress. I am not surprised over the huge support shown for Anna Hazar recently in his campaign against corruption in India. China of course is another matter and so disappointing after the statement made in support of tiger conservation at the St. Petersburg conference last year by the Chinese Prime Minister. It would have been a golden opportunity for the Chinese Premier to have used his considerable influence to shut down the wretched tiger farms as a commitment and goodwill gesture to the other Tiger Range States. Sorry i am rambling on-keep up the excellent work Debbie as always you have my full support.
