Tiger slaughter house found in Thailand
Police investigating Thailand’s Tiger Temple have found what they believe was a slaughterhouse and tiger holding facility used in a suspected animal trafficking network. The discovery is the latest scandal about the Buddhist temple, which was a popular tourist attraction that charged admission for visitors to take photos with the tigers. Police officers, acting on a tip, raided a home about 50 kilometres from the temple in Kanchanaburi province in western Thailand and found four live tigers and what appeared to be a slaughterhouse. Last week, authorities removed more than 137 live tigers from the temple and found 40 dead tiger cubs in a freezer.
