Rechecked numbers on China's wild tiger population. Actually, Ohio police killed equivalent of 36% of them.

Wild tigers in China are on the Brink of Extinction Xie Yan, the China Country Program Director for the Wildlife Conservation Society , estimates that fewer than 50 South China Tigers are left in the wild, with about "10 still live in the southwestern province of Yunnan, some 15 in Tibet, and 20 or so in northwestern Jilin and Heilongjiang provinces." Even if take a step back and look at 12 Asian countries and Russia, it is estimated that only about 3,500 tigers are left in the wild, compared to around 100,000 at the beginning of the 20th century.
