China, a land that unfortunately gets not the greatest publicity.
In a recent case, the country took the spotlight when they were discovered to be abusing an Amur Tiger, or also known as a Siberian Tiger.
Days ago a video surfaced online depicting an endangered tiger being harshly restrained and tied up by Chinese circus handler so it could used as a photography hub for visitors! Oh the disgust!
The poor animal was tied up with several ropes on a metal table, while the tiger helplessly allowed himself to be restrained.
As tigers are naturally powerful and intelligent animals, they would have to be put under a long term and constant threat of punishment and intimidation so they could be tied down such a way without retaliating even the slightest.
In the video, it shows several Chinese visitors, including young toddlers, waiting patiently to have their picture taken with the tiger. A distressed bear can also be seen pacing behind, exhibiting symptoms of psychological disorder.
Among the curious visitors, there were a pair of mother and child that particularly stood out. The mother carried the child over and allowed her to sat on top of the tiger, while the child screamed loudly ‘I’m scared, I’m scared!’ .
The obviously distressed tiger was tied down by two tight and sturdy belts, leaving the animal with literally no room to move… just so visitors can sit on it for their photo taking fun.
What’s more sickening is the fact that a circus worker was encouraging the masses to participate in the cruel act. He can be heard saying ‘How cool it is to sit on a tiger? Perhaps this can keep you away from the devils and bring you wealth too?’
Apparently in Chinese tradition, sitting on a tiger is the equivalent to channeling the God of Wealth, it was said that doing so would bring good fortunate and ward off problems.
The cruelty of the circus have been condemned by several animal activist group, such as PETA. The Siberian tiger is critically endangered and it was held that there’s no more than 600 Siberian tigers in the wild currently due to habitat loss.
