Tiger Temple Thailand Worker Filmed Punching Animal in Face at Sanctuary

Tourists are calling for a boycott of an animal sanctuary in Thailand after a worker was filmed appearing to punch a tiger in the face. The shocking video shows a row of tigers being tied down in front of watching visitors at Tiger Temple Thailand in Sai Yok. The tiger at the front is seen being roughly handled by its keeper, a man in an orange and black shirt. But then he pulls the tiger over onto its side by the skin, before delivering a savage punch to the right hand side of the tiger’s head before walking off. The footage was taken by Pranay Dalmia, who visited the temple earlier this month.
