China Calls for Tiger Protection

From the Economic Times (part of the India Times, I think)....
India’s newfound partnership with China on environment issues has yielded results in the area of tiger protection as well. In what could be seen as a new year’s gift for the Indian tiger, China’s State Forestry Administration has issued a directive calling for the protection of tigers, especially the need to step up action against illegal trade in tiger parts and products.
I don't trust the Chinese government on any issue. whether it be animal rights or human rights. What kind of protection do they really mean? You can put tigers on a farm for legal parts harvesting and still call it "protection."

I'm too, too cynical.
