Man Jailed for Eating Rare Tiger (The Law Requires Med/Well for Bush Meat)

BEIJING (Reuters) – A man who killed and ate what may have been the last wild Indochinese tiger in China was sentenced to 12 years in jail, local media reported on Tuesday.

Kang Wannian, a villager from Mengla, Yunnan Province, met the tiger in February while gathering freshwater clams in a nature reserve near China's border with Laos. He claimed to have killed it in self-defense.

The only known wild Indochinese tiger in China, photographed in 2007 at the same reserve, has not been seen since Kang's meal, the Yunnan-based newspaper Life News reported earlier this month.

The paper quoted the provincial Forestry Bureau as saying there was no evidence the tiger was the last one in China.

A local court sentenced Kang to 10 years for killing a rare animal plus two years for illegal possession of firearms, the local web portal Yunnan.cn reported. Prosecutors said Kang did not need a gun to gather clams.

Four villagers who helped Kang dismember the tiger and ate its meat were also sentenced from three to four years for "covering up and concealing criminal gains," the report said.

Prosecutors said Kang did not need a gun to gather clams.

"Try telling that to my cousin Chailai! She was eaten by a giant clam!" Kang yelled as he was led from the courtroom.

When human life is devalued and abortion and infanticide is state policy, the Culture of Death is institutionalized...for humans, not Tigers. It is truly disgusting, the morality of the atheistic socialists.

Yes, and as the headline states, he was busted for eating rare tiger. Bushmeat shouldn't be eaten rare, that's asking for it.

What does this have to do with this thread?

Just more dilution of the message.

Good job.

Some of the bearded ones have been known to be fierce.

Eaker, from viewing your In Forum page, you are the foolish...LOL. Not one single post of substance. But, hey, you've been foolish for a very long time on here, so you do certainly have seniority...on foolishness. Keep up the less than mediocre work there, bud!

I understand you are probably doing the best you can with what little you have to offer.

You just seem to keep falling short. Best thing you can do is get used to it or join a middle school chat room where you might be more at home..
