How I met... a tiger by Anna-Marine How I met... a tiger by Anna-Marine
In Thailand we visited Tiger Kingdom...and..well.. I couldn't resist. I know there are constant concerns from environmentalists about the welfare of tigers in captivity in Thailand, but it seems none of Tiger Kingdom's tigers are drugged or tranquilised, and that chains and restraints are not used. The tiger on this photo played in the water pool with his brother before it was photoshoot's time, so it was pretty scary to go inside the cage (you see how scared I am!).I saw several tigers are playing with the volunteers. All they look healthy and well-fed. It's nice to know that tigers get care here.

Вы, возможно, было страшно, но вы выглядеть красиво и бесстрашный на фото. w00t! 

Я не думаю, что я мог бы пойти в клетке тигра, как вы делали.  Blush

Тигров боятся, в Тайланд не ездить ))) А если серьезно, то страшновато конечно, потому что вопреки рассказам о том, что тигров пичкают снотворным и наркотиками, эти были ну очень живые и подвижные. Просто выросли среди людей и привыкли.Но зато какой интересный экспириенс!

Это точно! Чтобы нервы пощекотать - самое то! Однако выросшие среди людей тигры опаснее диких, так как перестают "уважать" человека, понимая, что особой опасности он не представляет.

Lord...that is close up! That beast seems so calm, for the moment to just sit there.
Great picture, an excellent experience to photograph.

Crikey! You are braver than me. Even though you're keeping away from the sharp and pointy end of it, I would still not dare to get that close to such a creature. P.S. there aren't many people who look as good as that next to such a magnificent creature - their beauty usually puts any person who stands next to them to shame, but not you.

A very brave venture for the model.The tiger looks unfazed.If she's scared,the model doesn't show it.I call this over and beyond her normal situation in the studio.Well done the three of you.

Some people assert that all animals should be wild and free. But the truth is... some animals can't afford that luxury. Tigers are an endangered species, threatened by poaching and climate change. Zoos can be used as a method of conservation, and viewing the habits of live exotic animals can be educational.

It's good that they get care but that is still not a place a tiger should be. Animals are used to running and roaming free. As soon as you give them limits and fences, their wild spirit feels trapped. Now they're just like pets there, not able to do the things that are natural to them. They're given food at a specific time, which isn't natural cause this interferes with their skill to hunt.

I totally agree..i feel very sad for those tigers..freedom has no price..this is only a pathetic show against nature.. the problem is that, as usual, humans think only to their amusement..it's a very selfish perspective..i don't think they're happy to live like pets..

Very true. People think that just because these animals are not abused, that they must be happy but they aren't. Wolves, lions, tigers and many other animals tend to explore, run, chase and hunt on a daily basis. But instead they're kept in exhibits where they're just laying around and being fed as they slowly waste away just so people can take pictures next to them. It's quite ignorant and selfish.

I think tigers that were grown not in the wild life conditions,seeing humans since birth and never tasted a raw meat definitely vary from wild tigers.

I don't know, it's hard for me to believe that those places are all sunshines and rainbows..
I'm not judging though, but I think they should be what they are- wild animals.
