The Ministry of Agriculture has announced plans to tighten the rules on breeding big cats in the Czech Republic. The move comes in response to cases of tigers being killed to produce traditional Asian medicines and the escapes of certain animals.
The minister of agriculture, Miroslav Toman, said on Thursday that recommendations for the size of runs for breeding big cats would now become compulsory, while breeders would be forced to undergo a special course.
Police have charged several people with the wrongful handling of animals over the recently discovered tiger killings.
