When the stars threw down their spears,
And water'd heaven with their tears,
Did He smile His work to see?
Did He who made the lamb make thee?
The Tiger By William Blake
"Here may be as few as 3,200 left in the wild. In the past 70 years, three tiger subspecies have become
extinct. The six remaining subspecies are all threatened by poaching, illegal wildlife trade and habitatloss. Wild tiger numbers have fallen by about 95% over the past 100 years." - World Wildlife Fund
