What’s stressing out tigers in India’s central reserves? Tourists.

Content

Ever wondered how tigers feel in response to hordes of vehicles ferrying tourists eager for the thrill of a perfect close-up encounter?

Now, a study examining stress hormones in tiger scat collected from two popular central Indian tiger reserves has revealed that these iconic carnivores suffer from high levels of physiological stress due to wildlife tourism and a large number of vehicles entering the parks.

Commentary

Research shows that tigers get significantly higher stress levels from tourists.

This has a negative effect on growth, reproductive success, immunity, and it causes muscular atrophy.

The NTCA, the Indian tiger authority and the forest departments of all 50 tiger reserves in India have work to do!

Tiger Cubs Venturing Outside.

Content

The Rolling Hills Zoo tiger cubs are venturing out into the big world of their outdoor habitat.

According to the zoo, the three cubs will be going out today and in the days ahead to explore their outdoor habitat. Since this is new territory for both mom and cubs, they will continue to be on “tiger time” and their explorations outdoors will be for limited amounts of time that can’t be predicted and will be determined by the weather, their mother and her comfort level of having them outside, and how the cubs are doing on any particular day.

Commentary

The Rolling Hills zoo has produced 3 more tigers to exploit. One step in the cub-exploitation process is to show them to the public.

Zoos are dealing with decreasing numbers of visitors and tigers are magnets for visitors. Tiger cubs are even better magnets. This is why many zoos want to have tiger cubs and why they are being exploited to the fullest.

The well-being of the cubs is often neglected.

Tiger reserves in Uttarakhand violating NTCA directives?

Content

Tiger reserves of Uttarakhand- Corbett Tiger Reserve and Rajaji Tiger Reserve are not following National Tiger Conservation Authority guidelines regarding spending of 100% tourism revenue from the protected areas for the development and welfare of local population.

Many other tiger reserves of the country where entire amount received from wildlife tourism is spent on development and welfare of local people are following the guidelines of the NTCA to ensure that the local population.

Commentary

Corbett Tiger Reserve is the biggest tiger reserve in India, with more than 250 tigers. But despite this success it refuses to follow the guidelines of India’s tiger authority, the NTCA.

Instead of investing all revenues from ecotourism the government of Uttarakhand thinks it is fair to keep some of it and spend it on other things than in what is was meant for: the development and welfare of local populations.

It’s just a shame.

National Tiger Conservation Authority red flags MP govt's move to increase tourism inside reserves after plaint from Bhopal activist.

Content

The National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) has red-flagged the Madhya Pradesh government’s move to increase tourism activities inside the state’s tiger reserves in violation of the existing guidelines and asked it to take corrective steps.

This follows a complaint by Bhopal-based wildlife activist Ajay Dubey who has alleged that the state government has increased the tourism carrying capacity of the reserves by allowing in more numbers of vehicles carrying visitors.

Commentary

In India there is a limit to the number of tourists in tiger reserves, confirmed by the Indian Supreme Court, to protect tigers from human interference.

Indian states want as many as tourists. The reason for this is money – the money of tourists they can use to cover the expenses of conservation.

Some states don’t respect this court order. Madhya Pradesh, very succesful in tiger conservation, has six reserves. But obviously Madhya Pradesh is not respecting tigers enough as they are now being ‘red flagged’ by the Indian tiger authority, being warned by a worried civilian.

These guidelines mean that Airbnb will ban direct-contact activities that abuse and exploit wild animals!

Expanded Tiger Habitat Opens At Detroit Zoo.

Content

On Sept. 13, the Detroit Zoo hosted “opening day” for its Amur tigers and publicly unveiled the new Devereaux Tiger Forest habitat, which houses 2-year-old brothers Nikolai and Aleksei, and 16-year-old female Kisa.

The brothers were born at the Columbus Zoo; Kisa was born at the Detroit Zoo.

The new $3.5 million, 1-acre habitat, which is four times larger than and incorporates the old habitat, is located in the zoo’s Asian Forest and reflects the tigers’ native landscape of eastern Russia, with elevated vantage points, open spaces, wooded areas, pools, a waterfall and a cave.

Commentary

Despite the beautiful words and the references to conservation of tigers in the world this Detroit zoo has invested US$ 3.5 million into a cage for tigers. A luxury one.

But nothing into the conservation of tigers in the wild. That’s the priority of this Detroit zoo.

Cheyenne Mountain Tiger Chosen For Breeding Program.

Content

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo announced Thursday their Amur tiger, Chewy, was selected as a breeding match with a tiger from the Bramble Park Zoo in South Dakota.

Savelii, Bramble Park’s tiger, will move to Colorado Springs in hopes the two will mate and reproduce.

The other male Amur tiger at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Thimbu, will move to Bramble Park Zoo, as he is not compatible.

Commentary

Cheyenne Mountain zoo in Colorado Springs says it wants to breed Amur tigers because they are endangered.

Of course this (conservation) is the most heard excuse to create extra possibilites to lure visitors into the zoo as tiger cubs are magnets for people.

This zoo already tried before in 2018. But that didn’t work out as the two tigers that were supposed to reproduce got in a fight. The female tiger died after a cut in the neck.

What do you think of this?

Who's to blame? Siegfried & Roy address new claims over infamous tiger attack in exclusive 20/20 trailer.

Content

It’s been almost 16 years since performer Roy Horn of the famous duo Siegfried & Roy was attacked on stage and nearly killed by a tiger during their Las Vegas magic show, on Oct. 3, 2003.

Now, for the first time in over a decade, Siegfried Fischbacher and Horn are sitting down together for an emotional primetime interview, to tell their version of events from that night.

Commentary

It took 16 years to come up with a plausible story about why the tiger attacked Roy Horn of famous duo Siegfried & Roy in a Las Vegas show.

In the end it is just pointing fingers without blaming the tiger. But the tiger just did what a tiger does: being inpredictable.

Especially when they are in captivity.

Bengal Tiger Dies At Delhi Zoo.

Content

An eight-year-old Bengal tiger died in the Delhi zoo on Friday due to “multiple organ failure”, officials said. Rama died around 1 pm on Friday.

The zoo has seen deaths of 245 animals from April 2018 to June 2019. It has also lost the entire population of around 10 animal species, including chinkara, water monitor lizard, soft-shelled turtle and ostrich, in recent times.

Recently the zoo’s last cape buffalo died allegedly after eating plastic.

Commentary

One of the worst zoos in the world is in Delhi (India). In 14 months already 245 animals died in this Delhi zoo. Now one of their main attractions, a royal Bengal tiger named Rama, suddenly died.

One week before the tiger attacked a zookeeper, injuring the hand of the careless employee. It might be a coincidence that the tiger died one week after the incident, but the odds are against it.

This calls for a thorough investigation on the zoo as a whole (management too). But the question is: will the Indian zoo association (CZA) have the guts to do this?

Arkansas Animal Advocates Upset About Tiger Show At State Fair.

Content

Fort Smith residents are in an uproar about a traveling tiger show taking place at the Arkansas-Oklahoma State Fair.

Nerger’s Tiger Show, touted as the largest group of performing tigers, is a midway act.

A 2017 article from 911 Animal Abuse, shared by Fort Smith Animal Services Advisory Board member Stacie Cox, said animals jump through hoops, make pyramids and “dance.” The show was employed at the time by Hawthorn Corporation, which was fined by the United States Department of Agriculture and had its licensed revoked.

Commentary

The USA makes itself completely ridiculous again.

Besides that USA-citizens in most states can have a tiger (an endangered animal on the CITES-list) as a pet, it now reaches a new low.

A circus act that violated animal rights before is allowed to perform again, only because it uses a permit of another proxy, despite of protests of animal welfare groups.

How low can the USA go?

The Tourism Authority Of Thailand (TAT) Says The Recent Deaths Of Close To 100 Rescued Tigers From A Popular Attraction Is “A Great Loss”, And The Organisation Is Taking “Serious Action” On Animal Cruelty.

Content

On Wednesday, Travel Weekly reported 86 of 147 tigers rescued from a notorious Thai tourist attraction – accused of animal cruelty and speed breeding for the supply of tiger parts for illegal wildlife trade – had died just three years later due to infections allegedly exacerbated by inbreeding.

Government officials say the tigers were affected by respiratory and highly infectious viral diseases.

After being contacted for comment by Travel Weekly, Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) said it was deeply saddened at the news of the rescue tiger deaths.

Commentary

The Thai Tourism Authority, with no legal nor enforcing power but with much marketing power, speaks out for ‘serious action’.

But will they act themselves? Or are their words just meant to please the newspapers?

Roosevelt Park Zoo Receives AZA Accreditation.

Content

As we reported Tuesday, the Association of Zoos & Aquariums granted the accreditation of Roosevelt Park Zoo by the AZA’s independent Accreditation Commission.

Accredited since 1989, the Roosevelt Park Zoo says the AZA is the gold-medal standard and having the accreditation makes them a reputable zoo.

“People can know by coming and supporting the Roosevelt Park Zoo that they are supporting a quality zoo that does put animal welfare as a high priority and all of our aspects of operations,” said Becky Dewitz, the Roosevelt Park Zoo director.

Commentary

Zoos have reputation problems. Not because of their service but because they keep most animals locked without any purpose besides making money to survive or profit.

There are 2400 zoos in the USA. Around 15 percent has an accreditation of the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA).

This AZA exists because of exploitation of animals and because zoos pay a high fee for getting an accreditation, so the AZA can “brand” their members so visitors have more confidence in the zoo.

In the end It is nothing more than a self-sustaining method for zoos to survive.

‘Rental Tigers’ Advertised Ahead Of Chinese Holiday.

Content

As China’s weeklong National Day holiday approaches, the prices of some surprising animals available for rent have nearly quadrupled — with leasing a tiger for the holiday week costing up to 60,000 yuan ($8,500), according to a report Tuesday from domestic outlet Qianjiang Evening News.

Following a series of animal abuse scandals and animal welfare awareness campaigns, a growing proportion of the Chinese public has called for boycotts of animal performances. Only in certain villages and rural counties does local demand continue to support such performances. But the sluggish market has also carved out a niche for profit-minded circuses to lease their animals for short periods, according to the report by the Zhejiang-based newspaper.

Commentary

China – the crazier it gets. Now it seems China has a tiger rental market: you can actually rent or lease tigers. And it is growing as the prices are rocketing.

We can only support Hu Chunmei, head of the Beijing based animal welfare project Freedom for Animal Actors.

Hu, supported by a growing number of Chinese people that want to have a boycott, urges people to report any illegal animals practices they might encounter over the holidays to the authorities.

“Horrendous” cases of animals being abused to please tourists across Europe have been filmed by investigators.

In one example, a wild bear is put on a skateboard, made to stand upright and pushed on a slide for circus audiences in the Czech Republic, despite looking sick and underfed, the researchers say.

In Germany footage shows elephants being made to sit on small chairs and stand on one leg after “brutal” behind-the-scenes training, it is claimed.

Commentary

The way America and Asia are dealing with animals in captivity is often cruel and inhumane. There are often devastating reports published on animal abuse.

Now Four Paws, an organization that stands up for animals in captivity, has investigated the way Europe is dealing with animals in captivity.

These Tigers Were Rescued From An Infamous Tourist Attraction. Then 86 Died In Government Custody.

Content

At Thailand’s infamous Tiger Temple, paying tourists could pet and pose for selfies with the dozens of big cats that called the attraction home. They could walk tigers on leashes and bottle-feed cubs. But the Buddhist monastery turned tourist magnet had for years faced allegations of abuse and, in 2016, a raid by Thai authorities uncovered ghastly sights, including 40 frozen tiger cubs shoved into a refrigerator and a monk attempting to flee with 1,600 tiger parts.

The government soon removed 147 tigers from the compound in the West Thailand town of Kanchanaburi, taking them to two state-run facilities. But in a tragic update on the case, Thai media reported Friday that 86 of the rescued animals have died. A government official attributed the animals’ deaths to a viral disease, saying their immune systems had been compromised by inbreeding.

Commentary

Tiger Temple, once famous for its monks caring for tigers, but later unmasked for tiger trade, strikes again.

Already 86 out of 147 seized tigers have died due to a viral disease while being in Thai government custody.

Some NGOs points fingers to the Thai government for not taking proper care for the seized animals.

Although that is partly true, the real blame is with the exploiter of Tiger Temple: abbot, Phra Wisutthisarathen. He was responsible for Tiger Temple and is responsible for breeding tigers. He is responsible for these deaths and a shame for buddhism.

This dramatic mass killing calls for stronger regulations by the Thai government on tiger exploiting facilities, like Sri Racha Tiger Zoo, Tiger Temple and others alike.

We call for a national discussion in Thailand on tiger tourism to prevent further unnecessary harm to tigers.

The Detroit Zoological Society says the Devereaux Tiger Forest is home to 2-year-old males, Nikolai and Aleksei, and 16-year-old female, Kisa.

The $3.5 million habitat at the zoo in the Detroit suburb of Royal Oak mirrors the tigers’ native landscape of far eastern Russia and includes wooded areas, pools and a waterfall.

The Richard C. Devereaux Foundation gave a $1 million gift for the exhibit’s renovations and expansion.

Commentary

The Detroit zoo opened a new tiger home for 3 tigers. The cost: US$ 3,5 million.

The Deveraux family invested one million dollar.

Half Of Tigers Seized From Temple Have Died.

Content

More than half of the 147 tigers seized from a Kanchanaburi temple three years ago have died of laryngeal paralysis, which causes upper airway obstruction in the animals.

The large cats in the care of two wildlife sanctuaries in Ratchaburi province had shown symptoms since they were brought there in June 2016, according to officials at the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP).

Officials detected the signs back then and despite constant care, 86 of them died, most of which were of the Siberian breed, they said.

Commentary

86 of 147 seized tigers from the Tiger Temple trafficking syndicate died. The reason: Laryngeal paralysis, caused by immune deficiencies from inbreeding. Others say stress is an important cause as well.

If the Thai government would have had proper system of controlling captive tigers and struct rules for tigers in captivity this NEVER would have happened.

Thailand is one of the three countries in the tiger axis of evil, next to China and the USA.

Kansas Zoo Says 3 New Tigers Cubs Are A Boy And 2 Girls.

Content

The Rolling Hills Zoo in Salina says three Amur tiger cubs born last month are a boy and two girls.

The cubs were born August 14 to mother Andrea and father Dhenuka.

“Since their birth, via the tiger cameras, the animal care staff have been watching these three grow, shared Brenda Gunder, General Curator. “I feel the male was the first born due to his size from day one. The first born has been on the move and keeping his mother Andrea busy, and has also remained the largest of the three.”

Commentary

Tigers are the moneymakers of zoos. White tigers are even better than ‘regular’ tigers but tiger cubs beat the odds: the ultimate moneymakers.

To make the most money out of the tiger cubs zoos always follow more or less the same protocol.

1. when mama tiger is pregnant, it is big news.
2. when tiger cubs are born, it is big news.
3. when tiger cubs can be presented after a few days, it is big news.
4. when tiger cubs are around six weeks, their sexe can be defined – which is big news, often accompanied with a contest for the name.
5. when the tiger cubs are big enough to be presented to the audience, it is big news.
6. when tiger cubs get their first medical check up, it is big news.

But all the news is commercial exposure. No animal gets better from it, only the owners of zoos that refuse to be transparent in telling how much they earn. There must be a reason for that….

Tiger Brothers Debut At New Tiger Forest At Detroit Zoo.

It’s opening day for the tigers….at the Detroit Zoo.

The Detroit Zoo introduced the new Devereaux Tiger Forest and welcomed Amur tigers Nikolai and Aleksei, 2-year-old brothers who were born at the Columbus Zoo.

The habitat is also home to 16-year-old female Kisa, who was born at the Detroit Zoo.

Commentary

The Detroit zoo knows that  tigers are supreme moneymakers. They are so  important that they decided to build a $ 3.5 million ‘habitat’, which is in fact a fancy prison – as a habitat is something complety different and now only used to make people feel comfortable.

The Detroit zoo unfortunately doesn’t spend a dime to tiger conservation. At least, it is nowhere to be seen on the website.

Isn’t that extra cruel?

An Unspoken Bond Between Trainers And Their Circus Animals.

Content

Elsewhere in the arena is Ryan Holder with his “girls.” That’s what he calls his female tigers.

 

Holder leans against the cage that surrounds the ring. He is inside the ring with four tigers. All he has with him is his phone.

He bends down and one of the white American tigers rubs against his black shirt, leaving a trail of fur on it. On the front of his shirt is his company name, ShowMe Tigers.

Commentary

More and more countries have a ban for circuses that exploit wild animals.

But not the USA – one of the three countries in the world that can be described as the axis of evil for tigers (with Thailand and China as the two others).

As long as this is allowed, tigers (and other animals) are being exploited, have to live in small cages, are being dominated and mentally destructed, without proper food and with a constant public pressure to deal with.

Tiger trainers are an important part of tiger exploitation. Ryan Holder is a part of a nasty supply chain, and he is even proud of what he is doing.

He even braggs about having donated US$ 30.000 to tiger conservation.

It’s like making money out of molesting children and then donating to a charity that warns about molesting children.

Mischa, Tatana and Pasha have just received their 12-week medical check up including their first set of jabs.

The brothers, Mischa and Pasha, now weight more than 12kg each and all three are said to be growing well.

Commentary

Tigers are key-moneymakers for zoos. Without tigers zoos would have less visitors. Supreme moneymakers are white tigers and of course cubs.

Zoos always follow the same exploitaion protocol, to make the most money out of new tiger cubs.

1. announcing the pregnancy
2. the birth – with pictures
3. the first presentation – with a name competition
4. the revealing of the sexes – presenting the names

And last but not least, every other step in the development of the cubs until they are lost their ‘adorable’ status.

Raising Apex Predators At Zoo Negara.

Content

Zookeeper Umar Ashraf, 32, fixed his eyes briefly on the Malayan tiger cubs, Wira, Hebat and Melur, who could not stop hissing and roaring at him. He continued to point a water hose around their enclosure.

The cubs’ mother, Kayla, who temporarily moved to a nearby enclosure for the clean-up, was upset. She roared loudly, displaying her fangs in a show of protest.

Commentary

Zoo Negara in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia is exploiting tigers to overcome their financial problems.

The director already spoke out recently that he wants to breed more cubs. Also he wants to make interaction with people possible to attract more people. The reason? The zoo is losing visitors fast as more and more people don’t want to go to zoos anymore.

The interviewed zookeeper said zoos around the world, including Zoo Negara Malaysia, played a role in education and animal conservation.

What he should say is that zoos around the world were responsible for stealing the worlds most fantastic wildlife from its habitat.

Content

A tigress at Pilikula Nisarga Dhama named Rani gave birth to five cubs recently. Three of them are female and 2 are male.

It is said that normally a tigress gives birth to only around 2 to 3 cubs. It is rare to see birth of 5 cubs.

 

Commentary

An ungoing tragedy: another zoo reports the birth of tiger cubs.

Normal tigers are moneymakers for zoos. White tigers are a bit more special. But cubs are the ultimate treasure for zoos.

In this case Rani, a tigress, gave birth to five cubs, which is quite rare.

Now five more tigers have to spend their live in captivity.

Ranked: India's Most Popular Tiger Reserves — And The Chances Of Spotting The Majestic Wild Cat.

Content

With only 3,890 tigers left in the world, it is next to impossible to spot wild cats in their natural habitat.
 
Those to venture to, require a lot of time, and a bit of luck. Changing habitation, wildlife poaching, and other human activities have been too harsh to the tiger population around the world. In the past century, three out of every nine tiger subspecies became extinct. India, which is home to more than half the population of tigers in the world has been working hard to conserve them.
 
According to the government, their population increased from 2,226 in 2014 to 2,967 in 2018.
 
Those who want to spot a tiger, can try them at over 40 sanctuaries and tiger reserves in the country.

Commentary

Tigers are becoming more and more popular in India. This is good news because they always say “the more eyes, the better” – as tourists have a preventing effect on poaching.

However, the role of media (also social media) is important. Stories or messages about the exact whereabouts of a tiger can lead to activation of poachers.

So please be careful when you see a tiger and want to share your joy with your friends and family – as poachers scan social media as well.
