Briefing on the manufacture of tiger bone wine in China

In 2012 and 2013, EIA investigators found that commercial use of tiger bone sourced from captive-bred tigers for manufacturing products, such as wine, appears to continue in China.

Investigators found one company is manufacturing and selling wine it claims to be made from tiger bone and says it does so with the knowledge and endorsement of government authorities at the provincial and central levels.

Among our recommendations, we urge that laws and policies are amended to end all trade, in all parts and products of tigers and other Asian big cats, from all sources.
