Behind the Cloak of Buddha – Cee4life
Drugging of the Temple Tigers – Drugging has always been suspected, particularly with some of the tiger
used alot with the public. They did show sedation
signs and symptoms. However, I personally never caught them being drugged, and I have never said that I did, others did. However, think of this, you are a tiger, a carnivore, you are not fed a correct diet and you NEVER have had red meat
, raw meat or bones to chew on. You are lacking in vitamins instantly. Then you are kept in a cement cage 21 hours per day, no sunshine, no exercise, you are unhealthy and lacking vitamin D you have no muscles tone as you cannot exercise. Then, there is no enrichment to occupy your mind, you are becoming null and void. You are also inbred, and are born with your immunity system already lowered, you are prone to disease and birth defects. Then when you are to move, you are beaten, bullied, intimidated etc. Then you are dragged out and tied to a tree in blazing hot sun for hundreds of tourists per day. You can barely raise your head. That is the factual life of the temple tigers. Drugs are not really necessary to cause this lethargic nature of them. The below photograph is Hernfa. Hernfa has been subjected to all of the above. He is the “tourist head in the lap photo” tiger ~ Sybelle

A Lynx; plural lynx or lynxes is any of the four species
within the Lynx genus of medium-sized wildcats.
The name “lynx” originated in Middle English via Latin from the Greek word “λύγξ”, derived from the Indo-European
root “*leuk-”, meaning “light, brightness”, in reference to
the luminescence of its reflective eyes is considerable confusion about the best way to classify felids at present, and some authorities classify them as part of the genus Felis.
Neither the caracal, sometimes called the Persian lynx or African lynx, nor the jungle cat, called the swamp lynx,
is a member of the Lynx genus.
“How Many Cheetahs Exist in Naybandan?”
First phase of cheetah population survey in Naybandan Wildlife Refuge was finished. A total of 45 stations inside the reserve’s core zone were monitored for more than three months to find how many cheetahs
exist in the area. As a result, more than 20 images of the Asiatic cheetahs
have been obtained which need further analysis to find number of individuals. Besides the critically endangered
Asiatic cheetahs, striped hyena
was another frequent large carnivore which was present in most of the stations. Also, three species of foxes (i.e. Balnford’s fox, common fox and Ruppelli’s fox), golden jackal
, wild cat, caracal, porcupine and ungulates were among species on images.
Reung Dao – Here is the photograph that my friend Ted Larson was able to take before Reung Dao was lost to the wildlife trade. Although I knew and met Reung Dao, I didnt get the opportunity to photograph her. Reung was the sister of Harnfa, she vanished in the early stages, when I first went to work inside the tiger temple in 2007. At that point, I did not know what was going on, but then one day she vanished…. She was gone forever. This is the sister of my beloved Harnfa. The diet of the temple tigers is near vegetarian, and lacking in every vitamin, mineral etc needed for a carnivore. You can see the horrendous deformaties of Reungs arched spine, bowed legs etc. This is the same with all the tigers. I am eternally grateful Ted Larson, you were able to show she was alive, that she existed, thankyou dear friend for having the courage to step forward xoxo
