Default Saving Endangered Tigers

Bangladesh Acts to Save Endangered Tigers

Nov 24, 2010 /EIN Presswire/ - Bangladesh has enacted a law that punishes the deliberate killing of tigers and other endangered animals with jail terms of up to 12 years.

A recent cabinet meeting led by Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina also decided to give compensation to families of victims killed or injured by wild forest animals.

At least 80 people and around 15 tigers have been killed in the last five years in Bangladesh as humans increasingly encroach on forest habitats, leading to conflicts with wildlife. The Bangladeshi government hopes that the new laws will help protect both people and endangered species from harm.

The minimum jail term will be two years for killing pythons and crocodiles and a maximum of 12 years for killing tigers and elephants.
