thai TIger Temple: helping or hurting?


The Indochinese tiger is currently listed as an endangered species – on the brink of extinction. Only a few hundred still exist in the wild. But one place in Thailand has provided a sanctuary for tigers, and claims to have learned how to tame the beast, but its claims have drawn some controversy.  At the beginning of 2015, the temple was raided by the Thai Police, after reports that it was involved in trafficking tigers and tiger parts. But the police decided not to bring charges. Tony Cheng travelled to Kanchanaburi, Thailand to investigate.
