The disturbing video shows a rare Sumatran tigerÂ trapped in an animal snare on an APP concession in Sumatra, Indonesia.
The tiger was trapped for 7 days without food and water. It’s paw which was entangled in the trap had become badly decomposed,Â leaving the tiger in server pain.Â A Greenpeace staff member from Indonesia accompanied the rescue team to the scene as an observer.Â Tragically the tiger died during the rescue attempt.
Sumatran tigers are the smallest subspecies of tiger, they are also critically endangeredÂ and there are believedÂ to be roughly only 250-300 left in the wild. Along with the rest of the big cat family, they are vulnerableÂ toÂ poachers that kill them for their fur and seek them as trophies. Although illegalÂ in most pasts of the world, it still continues today.
The rarest tiger on the plant is a South China Tiger, there are thought to be less than 20 left in the wild. There is fear of their extinction within the next decade.
ExtinctÂ subspecies of tiger include, theÂ Bali tiger,Â Caspian tiger, and the Javan tigers. Lets not make it anymore!
