This illegally trafficked mounted tiger head was confiscated by US federal wildlife officials in 2013. Tigers are among the most critically endangered big cats in the world. There are an estimated 3,800 remaining in the wild and nearly 95% of traditional tiger habitat globally has been lost due to poaching, loss of habitat, and human-wildlife conflict. Tiger products often range from pelts, tiger bone medicines, and trophy mounts.
