Bachelorette Alum and wildlife conservationist Blake Moynes sent a letter on Lady Freethinker’s (LFT) behalf to officials in Thailand, urging them to ban cruel photo ops with big cats after an LFT investigation revealed tigers, lions and ligers are tightly chained by the neck to concrete slabs, whipped repeatedly, and have lighter flames forced under their nostrils, all so tourists can pose with them.
In the letter, Moynes urges Thailand officials to take a stand against cruelty to animals, and forbid selfies with big cats for good.
“The video showing tigers chained tightly to concrete and other big cats pacing in small, barren enclosures with murky green water is a disgrace to these incredible animals, who are protective of their families, enjoy bathing in streams and rivers, and are also on the brink of extinction,” wrote Moynes.
The full letter is available here.
Thank you Blake for your compassion and unwavering commitment to helping save animals and the planet!
