Tiger tears

One of the Phnom Tamao tigers behind bars for life - click to enlarge
Everyone loves tigers. Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center was our final port of call yesterday at the back-end of our whirlwind tour of the Southern Cardamoms with Wildlife Alliance, and a visit inside the tiger enclosure for a close-up with these gorgeous animals was yet another treat. They really are incredibly powerful, beautiful beasts. They have a handful in captivity at Phnom Tamao but the sad fact is that they will never be able to be released back into the wild. The risk of poaching is simply too great. They must remain behind bars for the rest of their lives. So sad.
