About Bhutan the Tiger

Bhutan, named for a region in the Himalayas where tigers roam free from human interference, a factor that may just be the key to their long-term survival. Bhutan was used while he was very small solely for human profit – to serve as a prop in a "pose for a photo with a tiger cub" tourist photography business. But, once he was too big and his naturally wild nature began to emerge, his humans needed to dispose of him.

Luckily, Bhutan recently found safe sanctuary at Wildlife Waystation, where he will be properly cared for and loved for the rest of his life. Many others in his situation are not as fortunate and often end up in unsavory places like roadside attractions or even euthanized. This is why the public should never support the use and abuse of wild animals for entertainment or profit.
