Top Reasons for Live Tiger Export

Most of the 384 live tigers that South Africa exported between 2010-2020 were imported by zoos (269), breeding facilities (54), circuses (42) and for commercial purposes (16), according to the CITES Trade Database.
Couple this with the Top 5 importing countries of live tigers from South Africa, namely Vietnam, China, Thailand, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, and we may not only be feeding the tiger bone trade directly, but also potentially create huge animal welfare issues and suffering.
