Tiger Temple in Thailand
Tigers play in a pond at the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province, 120 km (74 miles) northwest of Bangkok, April 17, 2006. The temple now has sixteen tigers which are looked after by the Buddhist monks. The monks started caring for orphaned tigers in 1999 after local villagers gave the monks a cub who had survived an attack and an attempt to be stuffed. The temple has become an unsanctioned tourist attraction. Picture taken April 17, 2006. [Reuters]
