The horrifying end to Thailand’s infamous “Tiger Temple”

The carcasses of forty tiger cubs have been found crudely stuffed into freezers following a raid on a Buddhist temple which is believed to be involved in illegal trafficking and animal cruelty. Wildlife officials made the grim discovery on Wednesday at Thailand’s controversial Tiger Temple, north west of Bankgok, where authorities have removed 137 tigers being kept at the popular tourist destination. The Thai Department of National Parks (DNP) lined up the remains of the small cubs, along with a small bear, a dead boar jars of animal intestines and a set of horns, so they could start collecting DNA samples in the hopes of finding out how the endangered animals died, BBC reported.
