On February 7 2013, a wildlife trafficker linked to Malaysia's largest ever seizure of tiger parts was finally sentenced after a year-long trial. The day after, the world also learnt just what little value Malaysia places on the loss of an endangered

This sends no message to other poachers. This man was caught with 22 tiger skulls (plus the tusks). A month for each skull sounds closer to a real sentence.

One month in jail,why even bother??? Surely this disgusting Tick is at it again as we speak. This worthless Tick will not be poaching any wildlife in the very near future as there will be nothing left. I'm disgusted with the lack of humanity.

One month is ridiculous - this gives out a message to poachers to continue doing what they're doing. No wonder more and more animals continue to be at risk of becoming extinct.

That is disgusting.One month is no deterant.
The death penalty is the only satisfactory outcome.
Malaysia is well known for being a very corrupt country.Payoff to Politicians and so called Police.They are all corrupt

One month for each tiger... even if his sentence was not to run concurrently, it's still like about 2.5-3 months for each tiger... pretty lenient imo. :(

This POS should have to lose one body part for each skull and tusks found on him. My blood pressure just went thru the roof! Thanks Cher. Sure glad they are on top of things NOT!

Great! What kind of an example are that making out of this A-Hole! NONE! This poacher must be related to the idiot that sentenced him! And think about all of the animals that he got away with killing! Off with his head!!!

So sad - don't see the point and expense of a trial if the offender got off with such a paltry punishment.

What can we do to push for harsher sentences? We know the problem, not we've got to find the solution , and quickly!

Noted and article read with thanks Cher.
This is not going to stop poaching at all. They have to come to their senses and give appropriate sentences - can't believe in a country that size that it took a year to get to court???? Life in prison with no parole would seem like a better sentence.
Malaysia is becoming a country with nothing - no animals, no forests, no good land left, polluted waters and starving village peoples.
