The first morning after arrival I heard extremely loud bird calls and went to the rear of the hotel to discover approximately 100 birds in cages, 1 sea eagle, 1 dog, and to my utter disbelief 2 Jackals. The Sea Eagle and the Jackals are of great concern to me because of the size of the cages. Both cages are ridiculously small for these creatures. The Jackals cage was dirty, with no food or water. I spoke with Title, a front manager, who told me to "Forget about it and go to the beach." He also told me that I should "go somewhere else, Bangkok, and help the dogs there". He was rude and unhelpful. I tried to speak with other staff, but he did not want this. I was told by Title that the Jackals have been there 4 months and then later he told me 6 months. He said that his boss, the owner of the hotel, rescued them from someone who was not treating them properly. He plans to do something with these Jackals, what I don't know. They are still wild and this is the best time to set them free, otherwise they will need rehabilitation in the future. These animals should not live their entire existence in a small confine, unable to walk or run, with only rice and a bit of water in the evening. I have tried to find an organization here to help, but am having no luck. PLEASE SPEAK with Management if you are there. If you care about the establishments you visit and their ethics, this is NOT a place to stay. Imprisoning wild animals is ABUSIVE. Would you like to live out your entire existence in a small cage????
