Don’t Forget Your Cute Tiger Pictures

After the horrors of the tiger park, I neglected to mention the cute photo ops at the end of the tour. I mean, how awesome is this vertical line of tigerocity?

After taking the picture, the employee wrenched the doped-out cub from our cuddle. He shoved it in a medium-sized tupperware storage container. He clipped on the lid. And he walked away.

The cub struggled for a while, but then went quiet. I wanted to cry.

The other photo opportunity was to pose with a fierce photoshopped Siberian tiger. We didn’t, but this sweet champ did.

    It makes me want to cry too-such cruelty-people with absolutely no feelings. Their own lives are filled with the same kind of disregard for each other too, I can imagine.

      I think it actually fits in perfectly well with the Confucian system… as well as the general lack of animal rights in the country. And I’m trying to get a visa renewal right now, so I won’t go into the treatment of people. ;P

    It happens here in America too. Right now a dog was found almost dead lying in a road outside Bowling Green, Kentucky after being dragged chained to the owner’s car. The entire countryside is helping him (he’s been named Malachi) financially at a local veterinary office and pulling for him emotionally too. A situation like that is so sad but apparently on its way to a happy ending.
