The first thing I came to my mind was: They killed 18 tigers, which everybody knows there are not many left out there in the wilds.
It says there: "Officers were ordered to kill the animals instead of trying to bring them down with tranquilizers for fear that those hit with darts would escape in the darkness before they dropped and would later regain consciousness." I was like, "What? they can kill them but they can't make them sleep for a few hours?"
I know tranquilizers don't work instantly, but at least spare those tigers. Imagine the next generation would only see them in pictures, thinking that they are some imaginary creature.
And why did they let the owner own that many wild animals??
