Maybe if Tibetans in Tibet got a real education in school they would understand about endangered animals. at chance of that happening with the Chinese in charge. Lots of Canadian wild animals get killed and their body parts shipped to China so foolish old chinese men can eat them in hopes of getting horny again.

Are Tibetans going back into 6-7 centuries where animal and human sacrices were known under "old Bonnism".
Padmansambha and Chandarakshita at that time abolished the real actual sacrifices by introducung symbolic acts of offers.
Now in this 21.st century,after all these reforming and reviving buddhism in tibet,again killing wild animals for their furs and games, is unacceptable in every expect.
It is shame to wear such animal-fur chupas on big occasions.
Even chinese communists do not wear such clothes.
Shame,shame and shame !!!

It is sad to know that we Tibetans are getting substantial credit for poachiing and eventual extinction of an endangered animal species. This is in stark contradiction to the popular image of our society as being pious, compassionate and above all god-fearing people. I find the idea of wearing tiger skin chubas very obnoxious. It's primitive, uncool and irresponsible. It will only represent the sheer ignorance of it's wearer.
Please denounce this ugly tradition of putting tiger skins on chubas. Unless we start saying no to this despicable fad, it will be difficult to stop the killing and trading.
SAY NO TO TIGER SKINS.

Pema Muchu and Tenzin Dorjee (Chumurwala) are the main supplier of tiger skin from India through Ladakh. Both the persons have strong connection with the Local police and ITBP people guarding the Checkposts at the border. Theswe people are disgrace to our community.

we strongly oppose to use any animal skins for the Chupa. as his holiness said this past summer to stop any sell or buy the skins of tiger, lepoard and any animals.
so the people who are guilty should be punishe by the india and by the china.
