Actress Jaime Winstone and All Saints star Mel Blatt have spoken about their passion for tiger conservation in their bid to save the endangered animals. Inviting HELLO! to join them on a train trip on the Eastern & Oriental Express from Bangkok through Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, Jaime said she was shocked by the rapid decline in the number of tigers in the world.

There are now only 3,900 tigers living in the wild globally, compared to more than 100,000 in the early 20th century. If no action is taken, they could be extinct within a decade. “It’s very daunting. It’s in your face and it hits home more when you see it with your own eyes,” says Jaime, mum to three-year-old Raymond with her partner James Suckling. “The thought of my son growing up and asking: ‘What’s a tiger, Mummy, do they just live in zoos?’ is really depressing.

Down in Jungleland (DIJ) conducted an interview with an official spokestiger regarding both these issues and some more. Excerpts:

DIJ: Congratulations — you guys have really scored well in these last few years. It just shows that all those gloom and doom stories being peddled by the media (present company excluded, of course) were baseless.Your comment?

Tiger: Just remember, there are 1.3 billion of you — our most dangerous enemy — pitted against maybe 3,000 of us maximum. You figure the odds. Each one of us has to deal with 3,33,333.333 of you. No tiger can eat so much, even if it were born and brought up at McDonald’s.

Mike Tyson

Even though professional athletes earn paychecks that most of us can’t comprehend, history is littered with stories of athletes who went broke because of outrageous, poorly planned or just plain stupid purchases. Check out these examples of professional athletes who spent their fortunes on purchases that were ill-advised, excessive or over the top.

Mike Tyson: Bengal Tigers

At one point, the world’s most feared boxer bought three of the world’s most feared cats. Mike Tyson’s three Royal Bengal tigers cost $70,000 each upfront, and required $4,000 a month to house and maintain. He eventually was forced to give the majestic predators away, but not before one knocked out Iron Mike’s gold tooth with a head butt, The Telegraph reported. However, these Bengal Tigers aren’t the only unusual purchases Tyson splurged his money on.

Steve Sipek and tiger Bobo

Palm Beach County’s very own Tarzan, Steve Sipek, died in a North Florida hospital last week, a man who never outgrew the bitterness of losing his Loxahatchee wild animal oasis.

The Croatian-born Sipek first came to fame as the B-movie actor, Steve Hawkes, playing Tarzan in action movies shot around the world. Then, at the age of 63, he became locally infamous when one of his pets, a 600-pound tiger named Bobo, got outside the gates of his five-acre Loxahatchee compound in the summer of 2004.

After learning that the tiger had been killed Cheryl Churchill and her daughter Kassidi speak to friends of Steve Sipek and the media in front of Sipek’s home, July 13, 2004. While her daughter holds up picture of Churchill feeding one of Sipek’s tigers and sits with stuffed tiger in her lap named Bobo, Churchill explains how upset she is that the tiger is dead.

For 26 hours, the aerial and land manhunt for Bobo went on, captivating and terrorizing his neighbors, while Sipek begged the searchers not to harm his tiger. Sipek desperately wanted to be the person who found his pet. But instead, it was a frightened wildlife officer who fired five shots with an M-4 rifle, killing the tiger and sending Sipek into a spiral of grief.
