INDIA – I want to warn the people of India, about something that is disrespecting the memory of Billy Argan Singh. For those of you who dont know the work I do, I was an undercover investigator who gathered the evidence of abuse and wildlife trading of tigers inside the Tiger Temple in 2007 and have continued investigating this place for 6 years. I am also the director of NGO Cee4life (Australia). While inside the Temple in October 2012, I found out that the temple is now considering conducting one of the most unethical projects being touted under the banner of tiger conservation. They plan to release captive inbred, cross bred tigers into the wild. This will fail. However, they used Billy Singh’s name, and his work with Tara. The Tigers of the infamous Tiger Temple in Thailand are horrendously inbred and cross bred. The idea they have is to use current Tigers, (whom they breed rampantly for tourism) and instead of taking the cubs away from the mother at 7 days old or less as they do now, they are going to let the mothers have the cubs, with no human contact and then release them into the wild of Thailand. They say that this will be successful. I told them that no Tiger has survived a long time in the wild, they then quoted Billy Singh and Tara. That was one of the biggest pathetic insults that could be thrown to Billy Singh. Not only is the Tiger Temple responsible for some of the worst abuse and deaths of Tigers in present days, but also, to use India, and the revered conservationist Billy Singh to promote their highly unethical, and completely non-conservation project using his name is a disgrace.
India, the Tigers inside the Tiger Temple are Bengals, not Indochinese. They are Bengals, inbred and cross bred, and bought via the wildife trade, and used and exploited in a hell that no Tiger should be in.
I asked them what will happen when the Tigers they release cannot hunt, they told me that those Tigers will then be kept in captivity.
I can tell you now, that this project will fail. (If you want me to go into the details of why it will fail please ask me) And in all likelihood, they are lying about release into the wild, and in reality they purely want more Tigers, for a 2nd or 3rd Tiger Temple.
Recently 20 members of the Tiger Temple came to India.
I am highly concerned that they are trying to get their hooks into India, the very country which the Tigers of the Temple were stolen from.
Please be aware and alert to anything regarding the Tiger Temple in India.
It is a disgrace that the memory of Billy Singhs work has now been linked with this evil abusive wildlife trading Temple.
Please be on guard.
I will update you on any future information. Please share this far and wide with all your Indian colleagues.
