“Tiger Temple,” in Saiyok


A Thai Buddhist monk plays with tigers at the “Tiger Temple,” in Saiyok district in Kanchanaburi province, west of Bangkok, Thursday, Feb. 12, 2015. Wildlife protection officials said on Thursday they found no mistreatment of the more than 100 tigers at the temple, one of the country’s most popular destinations for foreign tourists. Famous for the iconic image of tame-looking big cats living with Buddhist monks, the temple has been accused of drugging the creatures to make them stay calm, an allegation the monks and the veterinarian who takes care of the animals, have denied.
