I have no problem with tiger temple. As much as the ridiculously extreme animal rights activists who have based their opinion on these reviews would like you to believe it is a hell hole, it's not. I've been twice and never once seen any sign of drugging or mistreatment, all I see is a place which, fair enough, needs refurbishing, but is not cruel. As with all places that deal with animals, there are pros and cons. Fair enough I can see how people can assume allowing tourists to get up close and personal to the animals is dodgy.. But they have been raised by humans, they're used to our touch! And to those who complain about the chains, do you really want to go into an enclosure with unchained tigers? No. Thought not. Sick of these bad reviews from animal "lovers" who are not thinking of the whole picture, the monks and volunteers and doing their best to keep the population going. They started off with 1 tiger in the 90's and now there is over 120-of which only the ones most used to humans are allowed for the tourists for only a few hours a day. These people are doing their god damn best for these animals, sick of people assuming the worst because of these idiot reviewers who are not considering the alternative of these beautiful creatures being hunted/chased out of habitat. Don't be a sheep or think it's okay to slam a place when you don't know all the facts.
