Look To Learn: Should Tiger Temple Bangkok Have Been Shut Down? #connectingclassrooms #globaled #looktolearn

Wildlife officials relocating its 137 tigers, mostly Bengal tigers, amid charges of illegal trafficking, animal mistreatment by temple authorities.

Thailand may close down its famed Tiger Temple, popular among Indian and foreign tourists, as wildlife officials have started relocating its 137 tigers, mostly Bengal tigers, amid allegations of illegal trafficking and animal mistreatment by temple authorities.

In the first batch, more than 100 tigers will be taken away from Wat Pa Luangta Bua Yannasampanno, popularly known as the Tiger Temple, said the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation.

“We found 40 tiger cubs today, they were aged about one or two days when they died but we don’t quite know yet how long they have been dead,” police colonel Bandith Meungsukhum told AFP.

He said a fresh criminal complaint would now be filed against the Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua temple, in the western province of Kanchanaburi.

It remains unclear why the dead cubs were being stored in the temple, though tiger bones and body parts are frequently used in traditional Chinese medicine.

But a worker at the temple told the Telegraph that they were merely following the instructions of a vet.

    I do agree for it to be shut down because it is cruel to hurt and cut up tigers and it is not right to give tigers drugs just to get money for the black market.

    I think it’s really not good they should get a $10,000 fine.
    And they all should be in jail.

    Defiantly not its cruel to have a business just for the black market and definitely no because baby tigers in a fridge I don’t think that would be a good childhood.

    I believe the tiger temple should be shut down forever. It should be shut down because the tourist start supporting the black market and allows them to poach baby tigers. The temple should also be shut down because the baby tigers are being killed in freezers. To me, hearing that somebody is poaching (baby) tigers, it absolutely disgusts me. The whole thing needed to be shut down ages ago because hearing that they get drugged as well, it just astonished me and I would never go their. Whoever goes there, I believe they should of just gone to dreamworld in Australia.

    My opinion on poaching the Tigers is that it has to stop. Poaching needs to stop because it is illegal and it is wrong. If poaching the Tigers does not stop sooner than later, than there is going to be a newly extinct specie. They are only doing this because they want to grow rich at the black market.

    No. I would not go to Thailand for that moondust. That whole place is the most heartbreaking hearing I have ever heard and whoever goes there should be ashamed of thereself.

    It is just wrong to kill tigers for ANIMAL TEETH AND SKIN as well. I would rather die and kill one single tiger. I pro rally would not do that because only people who want a criminal record would want to do that. I would pay with every cent to stop poaching Tigers because they are just magnificent animals.
