Why are tigers so easy for poachers to kill?

    Law enforcement has not been very effective at preventing poachers in many countries where tigers are hunted and parts are in demand. Besides the large black market for medicines containing tiger bones in many asian countries, in tiger habitat the security is weak. In some areas there are not enough guards, and even when there are it is often difficult to identify if a tiger which has gone missing died naturally or by poaching because most its parts would be taken by the poacher. As populations dwindle, the species is also becoming weaker and more prone to disease and other disablements caused by inbreeding. As populations expand, tiger habitat diminishes, and tigers which stray from designated places will likely be killed our of fear. All of these factors and others have made tiger poaching much less difficult than it otherwise would be.
