Lonely Cats Get A Cuddle From Zookeepers As Covid Kills Tourism In Thailand

This is the heartwarming moment lonely tigers received hugs and cuddles from zookeepers after Covid-19 decimated tourism in Thailand.

Footage shows loving staff interacting with the animals at the Tiger Kingdom in Chiang Mai province earlier this month.

Since the coronavirus travel ban was put in place last March, the Tigers have had less human contact as fewer people had been visiting the zoo.

So to keep the big cats happy, tiger-keepers took them out to have showers, scrub them, brush their fur, and cuddle with them.



Zoo manager Pirom Jantama said: ‘A lot of these tigers are lonely due to the lack of tourists, if there are no tiger-keepers around, some of them start to cry and feel sad.’

More than 50 tigers are living in the zoo with different breeds including Bengal, Siberian, and Cheetahs ranging from seven months to seven-years-old.

Some of the popular tigers at the zoo are Buay, Bank, Chetar, Nammon and Namo, all of which receive regular cuddles from their keepers.

Food Park At Big C Ratchadamri Is Dead Without Chinese Tourists

Photos of the Food Park located at Big C on Ratchadamri Road in Bangkok looking like a ghost town have been widely circulated on social media over the past 24 hours.

Of course, food courts are currently closed in Bangkok due to the government order, however, this has been the scene since last April.

Normally the Big C Superstore would be packed from open until close with thousands of Chinese tourists passing through its doors every hour.

The Ratchadamri branch was the companies flagship store making more money than any other in Thailand.

Lower Sukhumvit Is A Ghost Town

This was the scene showing many closed bars, hotels, shops and restaurants on Sukhumvit Road this week.

Like many people living in Bangkok, I was hoping the powers that be weren’t going to pull the plug on restaurants. Sadly, they did.

They’ll be staying closed until further notice when someone decides it’s safe for people to eat with friends and family again.

There’s a lot of people whose livelihoods are been lost. It really is a sad sight.

This motorcycle rider is often seen around Chinatown at night carrying his pet duck on the back of his bike.

Here he is in a video at a retro night market near Bangkok’s Ong Ang canal. Shoppers gathered round to take pictures of the unusual pillion passenger and ask the old man questions about the cute pet.

He said his duck has a name tag around his neck which also has a flashing light and his phone number, in case he ever gets lost. He has a remote control which he says controls the duck.
