Heinz Greuling, Thomas Weidenbach (Deutschland) - 52 min
The Indian tigers are the most popular cats of prey in the world, they are the national symbol of six nations and since more than thirty years they have been severely protected. However, this is exactly the reason, why they are a target of avidity and craving for recognition. Those tigers are being hunted like never before. For a long time, one considered the poaching as the actions of lone operators, and one believed that pleas and good will would help to get the illegal commerce of tiger products under control. For the manipulators this is a question of millions, for the Indian tiger it is a question of surviving.
