Dozens of dead baby tigers, hundreds of tiger parts, illegal sales on the black market: these are just a few of the crimes of the abusive Tiger Temple, which is planning to reopen soon. Under a rebranded name, the new Tiger Temple Co. is trying to distance itself from the horrific instances of animal abuse discovered there in 2014. But investigative reporters have confirmed: this new zoo will be run by the same people, and we can expect the same disgusting treatment of animals.
When authorities raided the infamous Tiger Temple back in 2016, what they discovered was straight out of a horror film: over 1,500 tiger skin amulets, thawed carcasses of 40 dead cubs, and 20 more tigers killed and kept in formaldehyde. In other words, the temple was simply slaughtering and abusing tigers for profit. Fewer than 4,000 of these endangered animals are left in the entire world, making it more important than ever for us to protect these precious creatures from abuse, cruelty, and murder. Sign the petition to tell Thailand’s Prime Minister, Prayut Chan-o-cha, to stop the reopening of Tiger Temple!
