Malaysia’s tigers have all but disappeared, and poachers from nearby countries have pushed them to the brink of extinction, according to a new report.   A four-year study of the country’s big cats—the first scientific count ever conducted—discovered far fewer tigers than previously estimated, reporting as few as 250 left in the wild. Previous estimates had the country’s tiger population between 500 and 1,500.
