Newsroom24x7 Staff

Tiger TempleBangkok: After nearly 10 years of investigative work by Cee4life, and two scathing reports on the illegal wildlife trade and other crimes in the Tiger Tiger here, we can now confirm that ALL Tiger Temple Tigers wil be removed rapidly from Tiger Temple. The exercise to relocate the Tigers begins today.

Cee4life said that many staff of the Tiger Temple had no idea about the extent of what was coming, however based on a piece of information circulated on social media a couple of days ago, it is now certain that people within the Tiger Temple began to form a plan of action to prevent the remioval of tigers.

Recently, Cee4life had found out the details of what that plan was and have done all that is possible to prevent it from happening.

Cee4life message For the Tiger Temple – DO NOT HURT THE TIGERS.

In a statement, Sybelle Foxcroft, who haa been crusading to  protect the tigers kept in the mist inhuman conditions at the Tiger Temple, tiday said, the Tiger Temple was given so many years to comply and do the right thing, but they did not listen. No longer will the good people of this earth tolerate wildlife trafficking of tigers and/or abuse.
It never had to be this way, you could have simply got rid of the bad (wildlife traffickers and abusers) and worked towards a beautiful sanctuary.

We get no joy from what is about to happen, as we know it could have been so different. For the few human beings at the Tiger Temple who do actually care, our compassion goes out to you, we understand only too well how you feel.

Please everyone, say a prayer, meditate, but please send all your thoughts of protection and safety to the tigers of Tiger Temple. Especially keep in your thoughts the older tigers Sangtewan, Saireung, & Saifa who are the only remaining original tigers left at nearly 16 years old….. they need great care and handling…… Please keep all tigers in your hearts.

Cee4life has thanked the DNP for this action, Cee4life also thanks the organisations that have been extremely supportive to its plight for all these years, and also goes on to thank the public for their support.

No more will they be hidden behind the cloak of Buddha, Sybelle says.

More to come of course…..
