I’ve always wanted to go do this: meditating with Tiger Cubs at Tiger Temple in Thailand .

Why? Literally of what benefit is this to anyone except the selfish desires of a tourist to have a cool story or photo? This is not beneficial to tigers. Tiger Temple is a cruel, despicable place that treats apex predators like commodities. That gives substandard care for a profit and does absolutely NOTHING for tigers as a whole. It’s not a sanctuary, it’s not a rescue, it’s a for profit tourist trap and it should not be on ANY reasonable person’s bucket list.

I just want to pet a tiger cub with my chances of getting mauled at a 0.  Plus if some people find peace by connecting with animals then let them, as long as the animals are properly cared for, not beaten or abused, or starved or treated unfairly or in any danger. plus what are tigers supposed to get? A check? I thought the tigers would get a new friend and snuggle partner. 

Did you even read what I wrote?  They aren’t treated well.  They are hit, they are kept in poor cages, they are chained to the ground, they are overbred, they are fed a terrible diet.  Tigers do not need friends or snuggle partners.  They need proper care and to be able to live under the most natural conditions possible in captivity.  They need to be respected at a distance, not interacting with people directly in a way that endangers them and us.  That’s what they are supposed to get.
These people are finding “peace” at the expense of animals.  So no, I won’t “let them” free of criticism.  
Also, in no universe can you pet a conscious tiger without the risk of getting mauled.  Js.

What happened to tumblr; place to look at cats, procrastinate, and respect peoples opinions and educate them in a respectful manner? And hey I’m sure there are other places where you can find tranquility with animals that aren’t harmed this one place can’t be the ONLY place in the world, also if a dog can raise a cow I can cuddle a tiger

No.  Don’t do the “what’s wrong with tumblr!” excuse, it’s dismissive and diverting.  Real people are on tumblr, with real opinions and educations on topics, it’s not this separate entity free of criticism.  Tiger Temple is a place of animal abuse.  And I will not respect the opinions of people that support animal abuse. Interacting directly with big cats and other lethal animals is unethical and irresponsible.  You want to interact with an animal one on one, choose one that can’t kill you or wont be punished for doing so, or choose an actual domestic animal.

And here are some sources on cub petting:
Big Cat Rescue details why cub petting is inhumane and leads to many cub mortalities.
Believe it or not, petting cubs can contribute to canned hunts.
Video by Big Cat Rescue talking about the cruelty of cub petting while showing legitimate cases of cruelty and a painful look at the lives they live.
Lions, Tigers, and Bears Sanctuary on cub petting
It isn’t anyone’s right to pet a tiger cub.  Certified zoological staff at reputable facilities can interact with tiger cubs if their health is at stake, and they always pull all contact when the cubs are old enough to take care of themselves, because that is the responsible thing to do.  That is the only time I’m okay with people touching big cat cubs outside of veterinary procedures.
Please understand that this is abuse, not a spiritual experience or connection, and I am trying to bring awareness to that.

bigcatawareness is amazing and intelligent. FOLLOW THEM!

I will never understand peoples fantasy with meeting captured exploited tigers. The industry is horrific. the truth is all in the links above.

Ten Foot Pole - Closer To Grey

"Clawing his way out of the doldrums
Getting sick and tired of coke and rums
We’ll just have to wait and see
Because he’s jumped on the wagon before
Only to crawl and beg for more
His pride is just another casualty
His pride is just another casualty
Can you see beyond today’s euphoric state?
Do you remember how you’ll feel tomorrow?
All the people that you hate
All the times you’ve had to wait
Every piece of food you ever ate
Reminds you of your fate
He’s clawing his way out of a paper bag
Reaching for the life that he never had
And he’s just one step away
He’s going backwards on a two track
He’s going one step forward and two steps back
Getting closer to gray
In the end there’s only grieving
All his goals inside pulled thin air
Can you blame him if he’s desperate?
There’s nothing left for him to get
And he dosen’t care that the people stare
And they do fucking stare”

Well, let me tell you, beautiful,
I’ve been there
believe me when I say I’m not afraid
of destruction, sorrow, fear or regret.
I heard the devil call me by my name
