Think twice about wild animal tourism, visitors told
“Deplorable Conditions, Animal Abuse, AVOID”
Thailand's Safari Park has one of the largest open-air safaris I've seen in a while and some better cages, but of all the animals that deserved the best treatment, their big cat enclosures are some of the WORST that I've seen. Here I saw a female cougar pacing back and forth in her cage, looking stressed and frustrated, along with many others in one small cage. The other cougars just laid bored and exhausted, there was nothing else to do. A single leopard could also be seen in a cage that was too small for it, she wasn't wild, she gazed at me and looked away, she looked like all hope had left her. I nearly cried, so I sat in front of her enclosure to keep her company for a little bit. Then these Indian-Arab men came by, seemingly enthralled by the sight of these magnificent cats, they started snapping their fingers very loudly at them while yelling ludicrous Indian words, hoping to wake up the sleeping cats. The white tiger and Indonesian tiger enclosures were also too small and their watering holes were very mouldy and dirty. The tigers were panting, which is a very unusual thing for cats to do, clearly they were exhausted from the heat and the lack of clean bathing water just made it even worse. Thailand parks need to learn to respect these magnificent animals, and if they couldn't sufficiently take care of them, I challenge them to surrender these animals to a facility that really can. Shame on you, Safari World"
