It's a start. I think life in prison for killing an endangered species is more fitting- but? It's a start.

I think he should be bounced off the planet for killing an endangered species. May the tiger clamp down on his scrotum sack from the other side.

Glad he got caught, but not a harsh enough punishment.

No fine or jail time is enough for the murder of the tiger (or any animal).

Putin apparently needs a nationwide find/jail sentence - as do we in this country.

It may not seem like a severe enough punishment but this is a lot more than people get in the U.S. or Canada for killing animals, running puppy mills, and animal cruelty. .

We are also calling on consumer countries of tiger products, such as China, to undertake widespread demand reduction campaigns to discourage the use of endangered species products.

Educate people about Tiger protection!

Noted, Thank you Cher.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause

pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in

return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and

the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

This is not what I would consider a severe punishment, but it is better than nothing
