Please sign and share this petition in an effort to get the Madhya Pradesh forest department to investigate the recent killing of a young tiger cub as part of timber smuggling issues. The investigation of the situation should reveal what went wrong, leading to some concrete ideas, recommendations and changes that would prevent such a situation from happening again.

A young tiger cub was found dead, killed by poachers near the Bandhavgarh reserve in India even though there are laws against these types of brutal practices. This incident could have been prevented if the Madhya Pradesh forest department followed up a case of timber smuggling detected a few days before the animal was snared. Additionally, nearly 150 trees and 2,500 bamboo clusters were felled by smugglers in the core area of the reserve. The Hindu Times continues to report that the timber was then extracted by the smugglers by removing a stretch of the 7-feet high fencing that forms its boundary. Apparently the tiger cub ventured beyond the reserve through the broken fencing, getting caught in a poachers trap.

Something went terribly wrong, leading to the death of this young tiger cub. A full investigation is underway regarding this smuggling and poaching case. We need your help in resolving this case through investigation and concrete methods to ensure smuggling and poaching of these animals ceases. You can help us in our efforts by signing and sharing this petition worldwide in the name of tiger cub that was killed and other animals in possible danger.

Madhya Pradesh Forest Department – You need to do a thorough investigation into the recent death of a tiger cub that was killed by poachers near the Bandhavgarh reserve. Despite existing laws, timber smuggling and poaching continues to be a problem and will until you can find some concrete methods and recommendations that will ensure the safety of the animals in the area. Please work more diligently to enforce your laws and protect the animals from brutal attacks and deaths.
