|Save Tigers before it's too late...

Hey everyone! I am Stripey and my mum is one majestic Bengal Tigress,
and I am very proud to say that she is the best!
I am not sure how old I am, around 2 months old, she told me once,
and I can''t wait to get older to go with her and learn how to hunt.
Life is great here with my siblings and best mates,
and one day, my mum said, I may even get to rule this place!
I really hate it when she has to leave me and go,
but she has got to do it for us, I know.
One day as she left for the usual hunt,
I waited and waited for her, but she never returned.
We were starving and were anxious as it grew darker,
but in the end decided to wait till the next day.
As the sun rose to a not so beautiful morning,
I was worried and decided to search for my mother on my own.
My siblings freaked out and were panicking,
and I had one last look at them before leaving to explore the world.
I walked and walked and thought of all that my mum had done for us,
till I heard a sound she had once told me about, Shot of a gun!
I stood still with fear and saw her surrounded by some humans,
She was struggling hard and was bleeding heavily, but in the end she lost.
I saw the humans snickering,
as they bent over her body to take out her skin.
I didn''t know what to do, I was done and alone and had nowhere to go,
I quietly left the place fearing what would happen now that my mother was gone.
I never learned to hunt and didn''t know how to feed myself,
for the first time ever, my mother was not there when I needed her...
As I thought about the limited time I had her with me, tears leaked out of my eyes,
My dreams are shattered and I don''t think I will survive.
I can see vultures hovering in the sky,
they know as well as I do, that I am about to die.
I would like to give one message to the whole wide world and hope-
"Humans are superior but we have the rights to live too,
and please don''t kill us if u can''t help us because we depend on you"
I might as well be dead by the time you complete reading this,
and I leave this world to go to my mother whom I no longer have to miss...
