“What the hell gives humans the right to treat animals, in such an appalling & brutal manner; just for the sake of entertainment?? And why the hell is China allowed to get away with virtually no animal welfare rules; when the rest of the world has to comply?? The people in the video actually think this is fun! This is no where close to fun, it’s just down right animal abuse, for the sake of entertainment. The world is losing tigers at an alarming rate, yet in China it appears anything goes!! It’s well overdue that they should have similar laws to other Countries in place, to protect animals; yet China seem oblivious & turn a blind eye to such rules. I thought this kind of thing was supposed to have stopped, how stupid am I for even thinking such a thing!! Please note, I do not intend this to offend any Chinese individuals; apart from the ones in the video…and those who make the laws that govern your Country!”
“In January last year, the Chinese government banned zoos from putting on cruel animal performances after increased pressure from outraged animal rights groups. A study by Animals Asia in 2010 found bears were often whipped and beaten with sticks, elephants were prodded with metal hooks, while tigers and lions were made to endure chronic pain by being de-fanged and de-clawed But sure enough, only a few months after the ban came into force, some zoos were found to still be flouting the law…where is the law…why are they still allowed to beat an animal for entertainment? What about health & safety rules for the public? But if they are stupid enough to stand so close to a tiger, who could easily rip an arm off a child with one swipe; I have no sympathy!”
” I sent the video to a couple of welfare groups but have yet to receive any reply, so watch this space! Please also sign the petitions at the bottom of this page, thanks!”
Shocking video emerged today showing a dazed and confused tiger being smacked in the head with sticks while being forced to pose for photographs with tourists
The tiger, which appears to have been drugged, is seen slumped on a table as excited parents and children queue up to sit next to the endangered animal.
To ensure it keeps facing the camera, two men armed with white sticks bash it in the face and neck.
It is not clear where or when the video was taken or who is organising the photographs, which are very likely to have been laid on for financial gain.
One commenter said: ‘I was seriously hoping this video would end with one of those two guys mauled.’

A study by Animals Asia in 2010 found bears were often whipped and beaten with sticks, elephants were prodded with metal hooks, while tigers and lions were made to endure chronic pain by being defanged and declawed.
But months after the ban came into force, some zoos were found to still be flouting the law.
