Help us ensure a dignified end for the world’s most famous tigress

  • August 18, 2014


There is a proposal sent for approval to the National Tiger Conservation Authority in India for Ranthambhore’s well known tigress ‘Machali’ to be stuffed and displayed for visitors to see upon her demise.

Michael Vickers, who provides TigerTime with so many beautiful tiger images (including this iconic one of Machali with one of her many litters of cubs), has prepared a petition requesting the authority to disallow this course of action. In our opinion when the sad time comes and this wonderful old tigress passes away she should be cremated with the respect and dignity that she deserves. Please sign Michael’s petition and encourage others to do the same here:
