Bengal tiger is one of mightiest creatures that can scare the life out of anyone. Sadly, it was declared as an endangered species by IUCN in 2010. There were 8 tiger species originally, but with the rise of animal poaching practices, the number came down to rare five. The remaining three species disappeared during the 20th century and today, the total count of tigers is less than 2500.
Poaching of these tigers has been going on since the times of the Nawabs, and the hobby was passed over to the British rulers, who were thrilled to kill the big cat. Besides, forest destruction, and human interference in the natural habitat of the tiger is also challenging their survival.
