Beyonce, Jay Z and Blue Ivy are currently having the time of their lives in South East Asia – but their family snaps are attracting some criticism from animal lovers. 

A recent photograph of the superstar family with a baby tiger has been condemned by World Animal Protection.

Dr Jan Schmidt-Burbach of World Animal Protection sternly reprimanded the family for their photo.

"A tiger is not a plaything," she said in a statement. "Their health and well-being should not be sacrificed for a photo opportunity. When you look behind the scenes, vacation snaps like these support an industry that relies on animal cruelty… this sordid side of tourism is conveniently hidden from public view."

"Many tourists unwittingly contribute to the suffering of wild animals like these," he said. "They're simply not aware that their 'once in a lifetime' photo means a lifetime of misery for that animal."
