Laos | Extensive survey finds no tigers left in country; snaring, including within NPs, the reason

Are tigers extinct in Laos?

What researchers did find during a five-year camera survey of the biodiversity-rich Nam Et-Phou Louey National Protected Area was evidence of snares — lots and lots of deadly snares, which are designed to trap and kill any animals that stumble across them.
