Glad they jailed them although the sentence was nowhere worthwhile, but I guess at least it WAS acknowledged and they were fined. I am amazed at trying to save his wife with teeth from the tiger!

Why should we expect the Indonesian military to protect the law?

Happy they got sentenced, and a good fine. My not be what we'd hoped, but agree the government did something, some punishments, when so many governments turn the other way.

Noted. I think it's great they got sentenced to jail and fined. Might not of been very harsh but much better than nothing which is what usually happens.

I am glad for any length jail time and fine, although it needs to be stepped up to be a huge deterrent.

The poor tiger and bear! It makes me so SICK to think these monsters got away with it!! I pray God will send them to H-E Double Hockey Sticks after he shows them what they could've had if they'd chosen His Path instead of T.E.D's; The Evil Doer's.
