"Never taunts a hungry bear"

Naiphum Promratee, 36 years old, started toying the hungry bear by poking and hung bowls of rice through a rope into the bear’s enclosed playing ground.

But Promratee angered the bear, stood in its hind legs, and dragged him inside his cage, knocking him unconsciously and tried tearing off his flesh.

The monks are keeping two dozens of wild boars and a bear inside a separate enclosure cage where they encourage their guests to feed the animals.

A Monk and the head of the temple admitted in a report that majority of the animals that they are taking care of were “hungry” because they failed to give them enough food.

The temple has been making an appeal to the public and even tourists to give donations so they can feed the animals.

Mail Online quoted a spokesman for people for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and warned that: “if you taunt a hungry bear, you’re likely to get hurt”.

“Bears are powerful predators who, in the wild, spend most of their time foraging and exploring home ranges that nay cover thousands of miles, and smart people respect them enough to leave the alone,” PETA stated.

Naturally, bears suffer “immensely” when they are trapped in a cage away from the wilds and left with nothing to do but walk back and forth in its enclosed ground and beg for food.

“While this man got away his life, bears around the world will continue ti live and die in misery as long as humans still incarcerate animals in the name of entertainment,” PETA stated.
