GOOD! There are several of these and all of them are exploitation in action.

The monks needed the money to help maintain the care of these big cats that can't survive in the wild..What will happen now? I don't give a tinker's dam for the monks .they are useless parasites,but I am concerned about the future welfare of the tigers.
