Description

Tiger Temple- Illegal Trade, Animal Cruelty & Visitor Safety Risks Following the worldwide broadcast of the two-part documentaries by Animal Planet, the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, has become a popular tourist destination that attracts hundreds of tourists daily The Tiger Temple's success is based around claims that its tigers were rescued from poachers, and live and move freely and peacefully amongst the temple's monks, who are actively engaged in conservation and rescue work. Prompted by concerns raised by tourists and Tiger Temple volunteer workers, Care for the Wild International's (CWI) investigation uncovered disturbing evidence of serious conservation and animal welfare concerns, including - illegal tiger trafficking - systematic physical abuse of the tigers held at the temple, and - high risk interactions between tigers and tourists.
