    How sad to think that these beautiful creatures were also "casualties of war."

    This is indeed a sad photo. Tigers are magnificent animals and should be spared or at least an attempt should be made to avoid killing them. If we learned one lesson from is that life is so very precious.

    I don't think these animals are like little pussy cats!!!! They can kill a man and I think our Marines will help us more in a time of WAR than an animal.

    I think, of course, that in self-defense there's nothing wrong with killing an animal, but I agree that we should not just kill them because they COULD attack.
