A Bit of Tiger in Your Bottle?

Tiger parts are still used in ‘traditional medicine’ to allegedly treat a wide range of aliments such as epilepsy, skin diseases, pain, and impotence, among many others. Tiger bones are highly valued in those products where they are ground into powder and boiled in soup or soaked in rice wine. This is not only an issue in Asia with thousands of tiger parts and traditional medicines containing tigers being seized in Europe in the last decade.
