Remember Blake:

TIGER, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

Interpretation

Blake may be  asking whether there can truly be only one Maker or Creator. Would the mind that builds a tiger also build the lamb just to be eaten by the tiger?

………………………………………………..

Since I have never read Blake, and because all meaning depends on the speaker much more than on the dictionary, I cannot tell whether this interpretation is in line with Blake’s view of the world, as he seems to question monotheism.

According to Isaiah 45:7  there is only one Maker.  It’s a tough idea, but it’s Biblical.

A manuscript by Blake

The_Tyger_1794.

The Bengal tiger  is classified as Panthera tigris tigris.

It is endangered.

According to Wikipedia, by now there are only around 2500 of these tigers in the world, and the conservation areas are not large enough to really help them survive.
