Tiger Temple controversy

Thailand’s now infamous Tiger Temple has been accused of running an animal trafficking network and slaughterhouse, after the bodies of 40 dead tiger cubs were found on temple grounds. The Tiger Temple has long been the focus of controversy, with some claiming the tigers are drugged to be docile, and others saying unregulated breeding has set a dangerous precedent.

He’s a multi-disciplinary academic working in the fields of environmental history, tourism and the environment.
