Re: ''Poachers poison tiger outside Huai Kha Khaeng'' (BP July 28) and ''Mae Wong dam poses grim threat to endangered tigers'' (July 29). 

Once again, the harsh reality of unscrupulous poachers using poison to kill a tiger for its bones has happened just outside Huai Khakhaeng Wildlife Sanctuary.

What was this cat doing out there? The smell of carrion (four dead goats) was too great for the poor creature to resist. The government needs to restrict sales of poison but that will never happen. It is easy to buy rat poison anywhere, and every mom and pop shop in rural Thailand has it.
