EU urged to stop commercial trade in tigers

PRAGUE, Czech Republic – This police raid in the Czech Republic uncovered a disturbing sight: A slaughtered tiger and a collection of tiger parts all strung up in this shed in central Europe.

One hundred and seventy five customs officials carried out raids like this over the summer.

They highlight a hunger for tigers that goes beyond this one EU member.

According to animal rights charity FOUR PAWS, more than 8,000 illegal tiger parts were seized throughout Europe between 1999 and 2016.
