Belonging: WSPA Cruelty in a Concrete Jungle Campaign

Cats are Sophia's favourite species of animal at the moment.  She absolutely adores them.  We don't have one (yet), but my mum is a cat breeder and Sophia loves nothing more than going to see them.  She has some cuddly cat toys that she loves (although not as much as Barney, her teddy bear) and thinks all things cat-related are fabulous.

That's why she'd be heartbroken to see this.

This is a baby tiger cub, no more than 10 weeks old.  It was caught, killed and stuffed because someone thought it would look nice on a shelf or mantlepiece somewhere. 

But, what is worse than one stuffed tiger cub? That's right, two of them...

These two stuffed tiger cubs were discovered at a flat in London in the 1990s.  WSPA officials say these cubs are so young, they're mother was almost certainly killed as well because she would have been with her young and very protective of them.

Perhaps this is what happened to their mother...

I don't know about you, but this doesn't seem right.  Tigers shouldn't be in our homes.  They shouldn't be on display above our fireplaces, on our bookshelves or in our wardrobes.

Where do they belong?  I don't think you need me to tell you.

Please support WSPA and their Cruelty in a Concrete Jungle campaign.  Let's get all the London mayoral candidates aware about London's link to the illegal wildlife trade so that, whomever wins the election in May, they can ensure the Metropolitan Police's Wildlife Crime Unit is properly resourced.  Sign this e-petition and help support the cause.
