Tiger Temple in Thailand - level 2
The Tiger Temple in Thailand is home to 137 tigers, but all of this could change. Officials are investigating the Buddhist temple that is popular with tourists.
The officials accused the temple of maltreating the big cats. In January, officials took five tigers away and moved them to conservation centres. However, some people say that taking the animals away from the temple can be stressful for them.
People also say that the temple is connected to the illegal trade of wildlife. Officials must investigate everything and then say if the cats can stay or must go.
Difficult words: officials (bosses), accuse (say that somebody does something bad), maltreat (treat badly).
