大家對於老虎的印象通常都是勇猛威風、令人生畏的猛獸,就像《少年PI的奇幻漂流》裡面的那隻老虎一樣,但是看完接下來的照片,可能會讓你對這些大貓咪們有不一樣的想法….

根據世界自然基金會的統計,這些年因為人類過度捕獵和破壞棲息地,野生老虎的數量已從20世紀初的10萬隻驟減成3200隻,整整少了70%!因此,野生老虎現已被列為瀕臨絕種動物之一!

 

然而,大家沒有注意到的是,世界上的老虎數量明明正在銳減,但中國的圈養老虎卻是年年增加,23年前中國只有85頭圈養老虎,如今卻已突破6千多隻!於是,國外媒體Mail Online記者突擊中國規模最大的老虎養殖場—桂林雄森熊虎山莊,挖掘幕後真相!

Industry: There are now an estimated 6,000 captive tigers in China ¿ more than twice the population left in the wild worldwide. There are fears the number could very soon rise to 10,000

 

記者發現,在中國,許多老虎養殖場美其名是山莊、農莊、林園,謊稱目的是為了讓人類認識老虎、保育瀕臨絕種動物,但實際上這些地方暗地裡卻是在做不人道的工業化養殖場!

Starving: This emaciated creature is one of thousands of tigers being bred on overcrowded 'farms' in China, which open their doors to the public as tourist attractions. Unsurprisingly, they are not popular
 
Protection: The Chinese government claims farms like these are actually good for the tiger population, as it prevents poachers killing them in the wild - something which conservation groups strongly disagree with

據內部員工透露,山莊內目前有1800多隻老虎,但他們根本負擔不起龐大的飼料費用和飼養開銷。

Demand: And the number of these horrific farms is on the increase as demand for the expensive drink, thought to make men more fertile, grows with the expansion of China's middle classes
 
看看這些骨瘦如材的病貓,實在讓人難以聯想他們曾是威猛的萬獸之王。

 

於是有些老虎被迫生活在又髒又小的籠子裡….

這時,大家一定心想,山莊養這些老虎的目的到底是什麼?

Cruel: This is despite the fact breeding tigers for their parts is illegal. A MailOnline investigation reveals the full horror of what goes - where starving animals fight over scraps of food in rusted cages
 
雖然工作人員說,他們平時主要訓練這些老虎和其他動物一起做表演,但記者卻發現,這些老虎比起被當作娛樂觀眾的工具,他們的下場其實還要更悲慘…..

 

那就是,這些老虎老死、病死、餓死,甚至是自相殘殺後,老虎屍骨會被山莊做成虎骨酒,以昂貴價格出售!

Factory: The tigers will end up somewhere like this after they die, the 'Xiongsen Wine Company' where their bones are soaked in rice wine for eight years and sold for big profits

在販售部販賣的虎骨酒、虎鞭酒以及工作人員的親口證明,就是養殖場成為屠宰場的最佳證據!

Marketing: They are then sold on in bottles like this - which doesn't specifically say it is tiger wine, calling itself 'bone protecting papaya wine'. The tigers in the picture suggest a far happier life than they have had

 

據說,藥酒市場認為,虎骨、白酒再加上多種藥草製成的虎骨酒或虎鞭酒,具有壯筋骨、強腰腎、怯風寒,甚至是壯陽的功能,因此許多人不惜花大錢購入這些性能高又珍貴的藥用酒!

The wine is then sold in tiger-shaped containers - just so there is no confusion over what is inside. This shop also sells bear wine, made from the bones and a lot cheaper, at just £107 a bottle
 
看到酒瓶的造型,大家應該很清楚裡面賣的是什麼東西了….除了非法販售虎骨酒、老虎製品,這間山莊也有在販售熊膽酒。

 

雖然中國早已禁止捕獵、禁止販售虎骨貿易和虎骨入藥,且全面取締虎骨貿易,但是在老虎繁殖場的大力宣傳,以及老一輩和有錢人根深蒂固的觀念下,還是有許多人對老虎酒的功效深信不疑!

Vile: A customer tastes tiger wine during the investigation and was disgusted with it - describing the drink as a mix between cough medicine and three-star Metaxa

 

另外,對於某些商人而言,獵捕野生老虎的成本遠遠低於豢養老虎,再加上市場上流傳著「野生老虎療效更勝圈養老虎」,因此許多無辜的野生老虎們成了人類謀取暴利的犧牲品。

Craze: In fact, the farm owners don't care if the animals starve to death - they are just interested in the doomed tigers' bones (pictured) which they turn into wine and sell for as much as £400 a bottle

這些不肖商人將少量的虎骨和虎鞭浸泡在一大缸的酒,炮製成500毫升就要價近2萬台幣的虎骨酒,這中間的暴利讓業者們即使冒著違法被捕的風險也要斂大財!

Vats: After being soaked the bones are bottled with a mixture of Chinese herbs and snake extract to produce a sickly-sweet 38 per cent proof brown liquor that tastes like a mixture of cough medicine and cheap brandy
 
事實上,虎骨酒和虎鞭酒的功效根本毫無科學根據!

 

而中國龐大的黑市虎製品也早已供不應求,於是商人紛紛在寮國和越南等地打造更多的「老虎煉獄」。

High-end: The drink is consumed in tiny glasses - unsurprising considering its huge cost.  The hotel MailOnline visited even paired different courses with certain wines on its restaurant menu

 

人類因為一己私利而置老虎於死地,若是這樣的情況繼續失控下去,恐怕在20年後,老虎就會從地球上消失….人類過度捕獵、開墾導致野生動物的棲息地逐漸消失,目前已有上千種動物都被列為瀕臨絕種品種!
