What kind of a person poaches a tiger?

You might be surprised.

“Broken Tail” is a magnificent young Bengal tiger– playful, smart, arrogant. But after 600 straight days of following him, the film crew of “Broken Tail: A Tiger’s Last Journey” loses the giant cat’s trail. Broken Tail has wandered out of one of India’s protected national parks and into the surrounding farming communities. What happens next shows us how blurry the lines between people and nature, conservation and economic survival, really are.

Can Broken Tail’s fate and the story behind it offer lessons for our own future on a rapidly changing planet?

Check out the magnificent photography and storytelling of Irish filmmakers John Murray and Colin Stafford-Johnson. Watch the trailer here or the full version on the PBS Nature website.
