Dead tigers at the Lahore Zoo.

Another white tiger has died at the Lahore Zoo following the recent death incidents involving three tigers last week.

Rare animals like the ones already dead are extremely difficult to get. In addition, there also comes the responsibility of nurturing and caring for the endangered species.

White tigers; as cute little cubs above. They are one of the most endangered animals on Earth

All dead tigers are reported to have diagnosed some Blood Parasite disease. The question is, why didn’t the Zoo authorities go for a propper check-up or treatment of the remaining ones??

As DailyTimes reports, zoo officials say that they contacted a blood parasite expert, Dr Tusi from UAE, however, Mr. Tusi himself denies any such correspondence.

The newspaper also says that rotten meat given to the tigers acted as an ‘enhancer’ to the parasite disease that proved to be fatal for such treasures…

    I read about the first two and other ailing tigers and lions few days ago. So now the official number is 4? God! They are such beautiful creatures.

    And another news item tells that forces caught two rare eagles from some Arab party carrying them illegally and sent them Lahore zoo temporarily.
