#13 Asia


Dennis said...

Infamous Tiger Zoo in Thailand. Run by Buddhist monks it garnered large amounts of money from tourists. Accused of selling tiger parts and cubs it was recently closed down by Thai officials. Nearly a hundred cats were confiscated.

Didn't a Monk get badly mauled

which brought about the closure

Yes, at last, one of the monks learned that tigers hold true to nature. There is a photo of him sitting there bleeding, looking surprised.

Dennis said...

It was the abbot and only spokesman of the monk group that lost a bit of blood. The spin on what happened was that the monk was walking the big cat and tripped and fell. Not the tiger's fault.
