Yet another animal has died in the notorious Chiang Mai Night Safari, an organisation known for news of animal deaths, irresponsible care for animals, commercialisations of animals over care and a string of negative press, since its opening in 2006.

Justin, the white tiger which had been brought to the Night Safari at age 8 months old in 2011, through an exchange with a private organisation, had signs of fatigue and refused to eat on the morning of 17th November, by evening he was declared dead.

Following an autopsy it was determined that Justin, who had shown signs of drowsiness, lack of appetite and was listless, had died of sudden kidney infection. Parts of the infected area has been taken in for further analysis.

Justin was part of the Night Safari’s Tiger World and reached national fame last year when he apparently predicted the World Cup Football.
