The bodies of 40 tiger cubs have been found in a freezer at a Thai Buddhist temple previously accused of abuse and wildlife trafficking.
The Tiger Temple, west of Bangkok, is a popular tourist destination. Visitors were able to feed the tigers and take photographs for a fee, despite the temple being banned from charging for any service.
Buddhists are usually known for being adverse to material possessions and the acquisition of wealth.
Officials began tranquilising and removing living tigers there on Monday (local time). The temple has been closed since the raid.
The temple monks resisted at first but conceded when given a court order. They deny all allegations.
Pictures posted to social media had shown 40 cub corpses lined up on the floor.
Today, the corpses of the cubs were found, along with other body parts, the BBC reports.
The 1000-person operation to remove the living animals will last all week.
