Tigers in temple tamed by beating?

by Kate Harries, Elmvale, Ontario, Canada, The Buddhist Channel, Dec 23, 2007

I am so disappointed to learn that the tigers in the famed Tiger Temple in Thailand are tame because they are beaten by the monks.

I had no idea that such cruelty would occur in a Buddhist monastery. What is happening is that the tigers are being prostituted for the pleasure of tourists.

Let the tigers be tigers - create the sanctuary and teach visitors to appreciate the wonder of animals that are wild and true to their nature.
