Tiger Raid

PETA said the lions, tigers and jaguars were held in relatively small fenced-in pens, sometimes with more than one animal per enclosure, and also were forced to interact with humans for "selfies" or videos.

Also in June, a 450-pound tiger wandered streets in the Pacific coast state of Nayarit, and a man died from being mauled when he tried to pet a captive tiger in a cartel-dominated area of western Michoacan state.

In an unnamed Middle Eastern country on an undisclosed date two mercenaries set about carrying out a kidnapping in a raid on a house. Their working and personal relationships are tested as the story twists and turns so that you never know who you are siding with.

The animal was believed to be less than 1 year old and weigh under 60 pounds, but tigers can grow to 600 pounds, the department said, calling large meat-eating animals such as tigers and alligators a clear danger to the public.

Completed in 2011 at an estimated cost of 90 million baht, (slightly more than $2.5m) the 28 enclosures in Tiger Island meant that, for the first time, the tigers were able to experience outside spaces, albeit on a rotating schedule.

The open areas are strikingly different from other tiger zoos in the country. At the frenetic Sriracha Zoo, activities include tiger shows that seem to, in part, include having the cats jump through flaming hoops.

What resulted was a seeming disconnect between the apparently superior living conditions of the tigers and suggestions of a murky history of opaque operations and illegal activities; a disconnect between staff who seem to genuinely care for the animals and a minority in the upper echelons of the temple who have been accused of not sharing their concern.

By the second day of the temple raid, the majority of monks had already left. As it became clear, an investigation into activities was starting in earnest, any monks still within the grounds refused to comment and Al Jazeera was instead led to Adisorn of the DNP.

She pointed out that months before the raid, the official Tiger Temple Facebook page had addressed the policy in an open post, which claimed they were keeping carcasses as proof they were not being sold on.

Hidden in the car were two tiger pelts, hundreds of vials containing tiger skin, and dozens of tiger fangs. Adisorn said those caught in the truck had referred the DNP to the abbot for any explanations.

The U.S. Justice Department filed a federal civil complaint against the Lowes last November over their care of the animals. A U.S. district judge in January ordered the removal of 10 tiger cubs and their mothers.

YEREVAN -- Lawmakers have stripped a prominent retired general of his parliamentary immunity, after security agents raided his homes and found vast quantities of weapons, food, and other supplies meant for Armenia's soldiers.

Plot: Two mercenaries ride a wave of pitch-black camaraderie as they travel through the desert night on their way to carry out a kidnapping in Iraq. As the raid progresses, their frenzied world turns in on itself as past misdeeds come to the surface, and violently threatening to tear them apart.

Based on Mick Donnellan's play 'Radio Luxembourg', which might actually feature a tiger, an astonishing debut feature also for co-writers Gareth Coulam Evans and Simon Dixon (also director), Tiger Raid is great. At times some of its history bleeds through; there is at times a staginess in blocking and costume that recalls the footlight-flavoured fascism of McKellen's Richard III, but in other places there are things that only film can do - the gods take the horizon, no arch obscures the stars, and in one moment of closed circuit television it is really only the camera that can contribute the right kind of concealment. Dean Valentine's compositions add to the textures of sand and grime and desperation that so inflect the film. Dense, literary, open to interpretation, its two protagonists orbiting each other and themselves in a symmetry less fearful than fractal, this is brilliant stuff, bright-burning talent to see.

We are holding a talk 'Saving Gay's The Word and Being Gay in the 80s' with Graham McKerrow, who worked for the Defend Gay's The Word campaign and was a founder of the important and influential newspaper Capital Gay, who will be in conversation with Jim MacSweeney, Manager of Gay's the Word bookshop, talking about the raid on the shop by H.M. Customs in 1984. This event is fully booked but we hope to film this and make it available afterwards.

Indonesian authorities have arrested five wildlife trade suspects for attempting to illegally sell Sumatran tiger skins. The most recent raid took place in Jakarta on August 7 and recovered many protected wildlife species in addition to two complete tiger skins. On July 16, a raid in Sumatra recovered 33 tiger skin pieces, which ranged in size.

Both raids were conducted by the Indonesian Police and the Indonesian Department of Forestry, Directorate-General for Forest Protection and Nature Conservation (PHKA), working in conjunction with the WCS Wildlife Crimes Unit and local partners.

The raids are part of recent stepped-up efforts by Indonesian authorities to control the illegal wildlife trade. In the last 18 months, they have arrested 20 people for trading in tiger parts. Seven of these cases have already resulted in prison sentences and fines, and the rest are awaiting trial.

Last month also saw the sentencing of four traders in Jakarta arrested earlier this year and found guilty of illegally possessing and selling tiger skins, bones, and teeth. These items are typically sold to collectors in Indonesia and throughout East Asia as souvenirs and talismans. They are also used in traditional medicine.

Afterwards, senior officers compiled a list of likely suspects and ordered an in-depth probe of their recent movements and associations. Detectives are focusing on gangs believed to have been behind some tiger robberies which occurred since spring 2005.

Securicor worker Bernard Hogan (67), and his wife Ailish, were the victims of the 10th tiger robbery since another worker from that firm, Paul Richardson and family, were held captive in March 2005. The raiders then made off with ?2.3m.

But the pre-dawn raid that left two security guards dead found no explosives, no plot and no evidence that the building's occupants - an Afghan armored-car firm that has been working with the U.S. military for nearly a decade - were scheming to attack American diplomats.

Instead, the operation brought the issue of night raids directly into the Afghan capital as the country's Interior Ministry accused U.S.-led forces yesterday of flouting the law and company officials challenged NATO's version of events.

The U.S.-led military has dramatically expanded night raids such as this one to target Taliban insurgents across Afghanistan. NATO commanders say the raids are an essential - and largely successful - tactic, but Afghan President Hamid Karzai has consistently questioned the wisdom of the operations.

But it is rare for such raids to take place in Kabul, where Afghan security forces have taken the lead in protecting the city. Afghanistan's Interior Ministry accused NATO of flouting an international agreement that requires Afghan security forces to be at the forefront of any such operations in the capital.

The favoured quick-fix money-making exercise of the average Irish organised crime gang had, for decades, been bank robberies. But a massive investment by banks in branch security has made the traditional armed hold-up raids increasingly difficult.

The presence of CCTV cameras in most banks means any raider would need to be masked to avoid being identified. But security measures at the entrances to many branches, where customers are admitted by staff operating a buzzer, say, means masked men can now not even get through the door.

Thai wildlife authorities found 40 tiger cub carcasses in a freezer in Thailand's infamous Tiger Temple on Wednesday as they removed live animals in response to international pressure over suspected trafficking and abuse.

But the temple has been investigated for suspected links to wildlife trafficking and abuse. A raid that began on Monday is the latest move in a tug-of-war since 2001 to bring the tigers under state control. 041b061a72
