Hi, I noticed the pictures posted on this thread can no longer be seen. Are they removed after some time?

Probably, the links for the previous pictures are simply dead links now, given the passage of time.

...but you were using the attachment aspect... I wonder if the links simply died during a forum software update, somehow...
    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.
- Sedaka Sutta [SN 47.19]

Please read this recent news article from Reuters:

http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2015/02/05/thailands-famous-tiger-temple-raided-for-suspected-wildlife-trafficking/

"Thai officials have raided a Buddhist temple that is home to more than 100 tigers and are investigating suspected links to wildlife trafficking, authorities said on Thursday.

Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, or Tiger Temple, in Thailand’s western Kanchanaburi province, is popular with tourists who pet, cuddle and pose for selfies with the big cats.

The temple has been dogged for years by talk of links to wildlife trafficking and its maltreatment of tigers.

A Thai official said at least 100 tigers had been impounded in raids this week and were being kept at the temple until authorities wind up their investigations. Thirty-eight hornbills, a bird species, were also seized."
Please help stop ivory trafficking by fellow Buddhists:

Here is an update, from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiger_Temple (you can read the articles referenced to by clicking the numbers on the Wikipedia page):
On February 2, 2015, an official investigation of the temple commenced by forest officials. After initially being sent away, they returned the following day with a warrant, policemen, and soldiers, seizing protected wild birds and impounding the tigers on the premises. The head of the Wildlife Crime Suspension office stated the park did not have the proper permits for raising the birds. The tigers were impounded pending further investigation into the tigers' documentation.[6][7]

On February 12, 2015, ten days after the start of the investigation, ABC News reported that Thai officials found no evidence of mistreatment of the tigers. In a video press conference posted that same day by The Bankok Post, the director of the regional office of the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation, Cherdchai Jariyapanya, responded to allegations of illegal wildlife trading, stating that all tigers are healthy and none of them are missing. He also noted that the tigers all have microchips embedded in them and that the department has been informed every time a new cub is born.[8][9]

On April 28, 2015 Thai National Parks released a statement, where the monks are allowed to keep the the tigers, but are forbidden to charge an entrance fee. [10] So you should not be charged the EUR|$ 15 fee anymore...

Abbot suffered only 'little scratches' from tiger - Bangkok Post

Dr Sahathep claimed most of the abbot's injuries occurred when he slipped and fell. Only the scratches on his face came from the tiger.

[...]

Luangta Chan, was walking Hern Fa, a male Bengal tiger about seven years old, on Saturday afternoon when he accidentally slipped and fell to the ground, jerking the big cat's leash. That startled the tiger and caused it to maul the monk's face, according to Dr Sahathep and Luangta Chan's disciples.
