Photos taken by Paul Brown at the controversial Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, where around 100 live alongside Buddhist monks. Many were brought to the reserve as cubs and have grown up around humans. The first cub arrived in 1999 after her mother was killed by poachers. The Tiger Temple has attracted criticism from some wildlife groups who claim it is an illegal breeding facility and that the tigers are not sufficiently cared for.The organization repeatedly denies these claims. The center has become a buzzing tourist attraction where visitors can pay a fee to have their picture taken alongside the animals.The temple says the money goes toward caring for the tigers (each animal eats 13 pounds of meat a day) and construction of “Tiger Island,” where it is hoped the tigers will soon move to live in larger enclosures. ABC News spent three days at the temple and did not see any evidence of drugging or mistreating the animals. The founder of the center, Abbot Pra-Acharn Phusit, welcomes skeptics and experts, as well as everyone else, to come and spend time at the temple. Regardless of the controversy, these pictures show just how remarkably close these mesmerizing creatures can get to their keepers. Source 1 and 2 and 3

I want to immortalize this forever because last week I lost my ipod out in the snow and didn’t realize it for a day. I couldn’t find it anywhere in the house or the car so I took my bluetooth headphones out to see if I could triangulate it. I was elated when they connected and hit the play button to see what I was listening too last and was serenaded by this glorious melody as I shuffled through the snow trying to plow up my ipod.
SO APPARENTLY THAT KNK THING I POSTED LAST NIGHT HAS 3000+ NOTES AND THE GENERAL CONSENSUS IS THAT I DON’T NEED TO KNOW ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT THE SHOW SO OKAY POINTY FRIENDS IT IS. THEY ARE JUST GOING TO BE GESTICULATING CUTIES FOREVER
