Day in, day out, tigers at wildlife venues are chained up, and then forced to entertain tourists.

The #TigerTemple attraction was shut down last year after wildlife trafficking allegations led to horrifying finds during a police raid. Now, the company behind it has changed its name to Golden Tiger (Thailand) Co. Ltd., and is constructing a new venue.
