Shocking: Mediacorp 8 Days’ “tiger skin” shots
I reacted with indignation when I saw the cover page of 8 Days magazine featuring Wong Li-Lin draped in a tiger pelt.
What message is Mediacorp, the publisher, sending out to its readers? That’s it’s ok to hunt down tigers for their skins?
That the tiger pelt in the picture is fake is beside the point.
Worldwide, the tigers have dwindled to less than 3500, making them one of the most endangered species.
Tigers need all the help they can to survive, and for Mediacorp to send the wrong message is utterly irresponsible. Being a huge conglomerate it should be more mindful of its social responsibility.
In protest, I’ll boycott 8 Days and urge all who share my outrage to do the same.
Can you bear the thought that one day the tiger might become extinct? Soon the only evidence of their having roamed on Earth lies in pictures.
And ,of course, fake tiger pelts as well.
