Are people that are native to the forests that the Tiger live in allowed to hunt them?

    Strictly speaking, there are bans on hunting tigers, as each of the five subspecies (Bengal, Indo-Chinese, Siberian, Sumatran, and South China) are facing seriously depleted populations, with habitat loss as the main causal factor. Native people, particularly those that historically have lived with tigers, have mostly assimilated into the larger societies that have developed. I am not aware of any special laws that would allow native people to hunt an endangered animal. Tiger hunting is banned in both India and China, the two countries with the most dense populations of tiger, and they hope to work together to keep this animal in the wild.
