Thanh Hoa’s man illegally breeds 14 tigers

VietNamNet Bridge – Mr. Nguyen Mau Oai, 85, in Tho Xuan district, Thanh Hoa province, has illegally raised a dozen of tigers since 2006 but the local authorities have not taken any action.

A neighbor says that Oai breeds 14 tigers. “Sometimes they fought with each other at night. They bawled and kept us awake,” the neighbor adds.

Mr. Oai’s village is famous for processing glue from cow, buffalo, dog and pig bones. But local residents say that Oai raises tigers to process tiger bone glue.

Oai’s tiger camp has attracted many visitors. Sometimes, several tigers were reported dead because of diseases, which raised doubts among local people. The number of tigers in Mr. Oai’s camp changes very often, from 10 in 2007 to 7 in 2008, 10 again in 2009, 7 again in 2010 and 14 in 2011.

The question is why the local authorities have neglected this tiger camp and nobody has inspected the origin of the tigers.

Mr. Oai says that in 2006, his son, Nguyen Mau Chien, who works in Hanoi, purchased these tigers, which were baby tigers at that time, from an ethnic minority man. At present, the tigers weigh from 250 to 300kg.
