Thai volunteers play with tigers in a pool at the Tiger Temple, a refuge for the endangered cats near the Thai-Myanmar border. Since 1999, when villages brought a female cub whose mother had been killed by poachers to the Buddist temple known as Wat Pa Luangta Bua Yannasampanno, the sanctuary has become a major tourist attraction and is one of the few places in the world that allows visitors to touch tigers. The carnivores have been hand-raised by monks to control their aggressive behavior.
