The fight to save tigers and rhinoceroses from extinction moved to Los Angeles on Thursday, when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced an educational campaign to turn people away from Asian medicines made from the animals' bones and horns. Slaughtering of the animals for use in such medicines has cut down the worldwide population of wild tigers to about 5,000, and wild rhinos to less than 10,000, according to the Fish and Wildlife Service.
