17"These tigers are doing OK in comparison to polar bears in zoos throughout the world. Everyone can see those poor bears are sick."
What a totally facile remark - it is also pretty obvious that you know very little about animal welfare or husbandry so what you are basing that statement on is a mystery.
It is totally implausible that a layperson could assess the welfare of a tiger in a one day visit to the temple.....and to make sweeping statements about the health of the tigers there is quite preposterous, and trying to compare them with polar bears in other zoos...well it's risible isn't it?

21Comparing tigers to domesticated dogs is ridiculous. My Yorkie, even if stark raving mad, would do very little damage to any human. Yes, some breeds are more trouble than others, but given the millions and millions of dogs in the world, it's not a good comparison.
Tigers are wild animals and can kill (and do) with a single bite.
This temple has been charged with importing, breeding and being involved in illegal tiger trade. As we all know, you can do anything you want here in Thailand if you have the money. Police can be paid off, government officials bribed, etc.
I tend to believe what these guys report. They were they and I'm sure are more knowledgeable on this subject than any member here. Sorry, but probably true.

22The terribly sedated and drugged Tigers of the Kingdom of Thailand.
