Raiding the Thailand Tiger Temple

Raiding the Thailand Tiger Temple

Wildlife authorities found tiger cub carcasses frozen and in jars in Thailand's infamous Tiger Temple as they removed live animals in response to international pressure over suspected trafficking and abuse.
It just goes to show that a smile and a religious background are no guarantee for a love towards animals. These tigers were simply abused for the money they generated due to tourists wanting a cool photo with a large predator.
