Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua, more commonly known as the Tiger Temple of Thailand has come under immense criticism for allegedly drugging the animals and mis-treating them for monetary gains. This has gained much publicity after Care for the Wild International published a report in June 2008 stating that many of the tigers at the temple were not rescued from poachers but were obtained from illegal tiger farms.
A complete report can be found here.
Also, there is a 7 part video which has clips from various former volunteers and tourists which is evidence that the animals at the temple are ill-treated. You can see these videos below.
Now it’s for you to decide what this really is! In my opinion, with so much human interaction the tigers will never be able to adapt to their natural habitat, which should be the main goal for any conservation effort.
