China tiger park flouts loophole

Wildlife park accused of starving animals to use parts in traditional medicine.

    A wildlife park in southern China is believed to house the world's largest single collection of tigers, with around 1,500 in captivity.

    But while it is illegal to kill tigers in China, the park has been accused of cruelly starving its tigers to death in order to sell their body parts for use in lucrative traditional medicines.
