Population and Killing of Bengal Tigers.
Bengal tigers are one of the only 5 different tiger species of the world. According to the Wildlife Protection Society of India these are the number of known deaths of Bengal tiger poachings:
095 tigers killed in 1994
123 tigers killed in 1994
052 tigers killed in 1996
089 tigers killed in 1997
036 tigers killed in 1998
Though the number of deaths seem to be declining, it is possible that there are unaccounted deaths in the poaching activity. Poaching may not stop in time to save this species of tiger. It is estimated that only 3000 Bengal tigers live in the wild today.
