There have been many warnings about the Tiger Temple over the years (for a number of reasons). I hope this one will discourage people from promoting the Tiger Temple here.

There are also numerous tiger petting zoos around the country as well which are attracting a lot of tourists. All the major tourist destinations like Phuket, Chiang Mai, Pattaya etc have them and the same warnings should be extended to these places as well.

I could not finish seeing even one of the videos posted on the article above. It made me sick to watch. So sad...

I love tigers. To me they are the most beautuful animal in the world and would love to get get a chance to pet one but because of this above I never would try even given the chance. They are wild animals and you never know when one will snap and act like a tiger. I would like a chance to feed a cub but thats it. No big cats for me.

an accident just waiting to happen - there have been numerous warnings about this place. The illegal breeding program has swollen their numbers to over 100 as they continue to breed cubs to attract an unsuspecting public.
