Meet Alfie. Alfie is a tiger. However, based on the way he behaves (like a calm docile house cat) it might be hard to tell he is a ferocious beast. How did one man successfully train Alfie to be so calm and obedient, posing flawlessly with flocks of tourists? Could this man be a real-life tiger whisperer?

The answer is, no. Alfie is a tiger who, sadly, was raised by humans for the sole purpose of becoming a photo prop. The exploitation of exotic animals is a common ploy used by the tourism industry to make money. From elephant trekking to taking photos with live tigers, the tourism industry profits from the systematic abuse of animals…and the worst part is the people paying to see these animals do not understand what was done to make these wild animals behave in such a tame manner.

This video provides a glimpse into the life of torture and pain that Alfie had to endure to become the docile show tiger he is today. As Andy Trace writes in the video’s description, “when people stop paying for photos, tigers will stop being abused.” Keep these words in mind next time you are planning a vacation and share this video to make sure others do too.

Thanks for sharing my video Kate!! :D :D :D

I\'ve since gone to visit wild tigers in India where they belong, creating videos to help support eco tourism and wildlife conservation. They may be of interest to you... They may not. But here\'s the link.
