In Thailand, there’s a monastery that agreed to take care of seven Bengal tigers seized in a wildlife bust nearby in 2001. It now houses 143 tigers and cubs, a homegrown menagerie, which has become a tourist attraction where people can pet, pose, and wander among wild tigers.
Officials recently checked on the tigers to see if they were being mistreated or drugged to keep them calm, but found not signs of animal abuse. If your idea of fun is petting a real cat that could turn around and rip your head off while you try to take a selfie, then you might want to visit the famed Tiger Temple in Thailand. For everyone else, taking care of an ordinary house cat that will try to rip your head off while you take a selfish is far likely.
