Man Jailed For Eating Endangered Indochinese Tiger!

Back in February, Kang Wannian, a villager from Mengla, Yunnan Province while gathering clams, killed and had a fine meal of what is claimed to have been the last Indochinese tiger in China out of “self defense”.


Though there are reports that there is no way to confirm that it was the last tiger of its’ kind, it doesn’t really matter as Kang has since been sentenced to 12 years in jail and fined 480,000 yuan ($70 000). He was given 10 years for killing a rare animal and 2 years for illegal possession of firearms since prosecuters didn’t understand why he needed a gun in his clam gathering escapades.

Also making their merry way to the big house are the genius’ four accomplices for 3 to 4 years for “covering up and concealing criminal gains” as they helped dismember and ate the meat from our furry friend.

Our question is was he really so desperate for a piece of endangered tiger? And if he was killing it in self-defense, did he really need to eat it, was he not aware of his country’s endangered animal laws!!??

There are less than a 1000 of these Indochinese tigers today in the forests of Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar.

We hope you don’t ever have a pining for the nearly extinct, Wild Things
