Thai officials last week raided the Buddhist temple that is home to more than 100 tigers and are currently conducting an investigation into suspected links to wildlife trafficking. Authorities from Thailand’s Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation on Thursday checked 143 Bengal tigers living at the temple, and found them to be in good health.

Wildlife protection officials said on Thursday they found no mistreatment of the more than 100 tigers at the temple, one of the country’s most popular destinations for foreign tourists. Famous for the iconic image of tame-looking big cats living with Buddhist monks, the temple has been accused of drugging the creatures to make them stay calm, an allegation the monks and the veterinarian who takes care of the animals, have denied.
