What Happened to the Caspian Tiger? Animal Hall of Shame

Enter the Animal Hall of Shame: What happened to the Caspian Tiger? Enter the Animal Hall of Shame.

Here at the Platypus, we honour the traditions and beliefs of the animal kingdom. Namely that all animal life should be free from the threat of extinction. Extinction is the one, true greatest evil of all. There is no greater evil (except maybe Cats). So here, in the Animal Hall of Shame, we honour those animals whose lives have been snuffed out by the Homo Sh*tpiens.

What was a Caspian Tiger?

The Caspian Tiger was a tiger from a specific population of the Panthera Tigris subspecies that was native to eastern Turkey, northern Iran, Mesopotamia, the Caucasus around the Caspian Sea, Central Asia to northern Afghanistan, and Xinjiang in western China. Humans often forget that species of Tigers roamed all across the Eurasian and Indonesian landmasses.

What happened to the Caspian Tiger?

Since the beginning of the 19th century, the Caspian Tiger was continuously losing territory to human beings. Because of this, it was deprived of its habitat and prey. In addition, it soon became a beast in its own territory. Subsequently, conflicts started to arise and humans began to hunt them down as they viewed them as a menace.

Therefore, in the mid-20th century, their population whose genetic roots spanned over a million years started to decline rapidly. It is rumoured that the last Tiger in Tigrovaya Balka was glimpsed in 1958. Although a matter of opinion, the legendary final wild Caspian Tiger is said to have been killed in February 1970, in Hakkari Province, Turkey.

Why did the Caspian Tiger go extinct?

Those bloody Great Apes again. Not only did humans move in and take over the Tiger’s habitat to build farms, they hunted and killed the Caspian tiger in huge numbers.
