The extent to which humans have gone cruel and selfish can be seen from the fact that a place called the 'Tiger Temple' has been freezing more than 40 tiger cubs illegally in Thailand for black-market wildlife trade. The Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua temple in the western province of Kanchanaburi, Thailand was recently raided by the Thai wildlife officials after a temple vet turned whistle-blower last year and informed the authorities about the missing of a trio of adult cats in the temple.
There was a long-running dispute between the temple authorities and animal rights groups, and the temple has been closed until undefined time by the police.
Police colonel, Bandith Meungsukhum continues about the shocking discovery: "We found 40 tiger cubs today. They were aged about one or two days when they died, but we don't quite know yet how long they have been dead."
The body of a Bearcat, some deer horns, and nearly two dozen containers were found together with bodies of tiger cubs.
They clarified that the temple used to cremate dead tigers until the policies changed in 2010. "Instead of cremation, the deceased Cubs were preserved in jars or kept frozen."
