Many Yemenis don't know that the Arabian Tiger is the national animal of Yemen It was adopted by a decree of the Council of Ministers issued in the year 2008 which called for the designation of the Arabian Tiger as the national animal of the Republic of Yemen and considered a symbol of wildlife and national identity.However, this rare animal is threatened with extinction as a result of being poached and killed constantly.About 200 Arabian tigers caught and killed in only five years. Catastrophe!
