Pyongyang profits from tiger tonic
Tuesday 09 May 1995
Peking - North Korea's tourist industry is raising dollars from visitors by sales of a tonic it says is made from tiger bones. Bottles of "Tiger Bones Liquor" were displayed prominently and for sale at many North Korean tourist sites recently visited by foreign travellers. Topping the list of ingredients, in English and Korean, is "extract and effective components from tiger bone". Packages depict a tiger's head and bear a "central zoo" label. "Even if these products come from a captively bred tiger, we are not in favour of their sale, because the tigers are so severely endangered," said Judy Mills of the World Wildlife Fund. Reuter
