Glass jars containing 40 dead tiger cubs were discovered at the Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua Tiger Temple in Sai Yok, Thailand, prompting a large scale police investigation into the discovery. Footage shot on Saturday, shows the containers with the dead tiger cubs still inside.

One monk has been detained and faces charges of smuggling after the animal corpses were discovered earlier in the week at the temple which is popular with tourists.
