Several Takin are kept captive in the Motithang Takin Preserve in Thimphu, where they can be hand-fed by tourists and are obese as a result. His Majesty the Fourth King of Bhutan, Jigme Singye Wangchuck, ordered the captive Takin released in the 1980s but after they wandered the streets of Thimphu for several weeks, they were recaptured and placed back into captivity.

Famous quotes containing the word captivity:
“Had it pleased heaven
To try me with affliction, had they rained
All kind of sores and shames on my bare head,
Steeped me in poverty to the very lips,
Given to captivity me and my utmost hopes,
I should have found in some place of my soul
A drop of patience.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
