This is awful but sadly eating big cats is not restricted to these countries, a story on Care2 told us about lion being eaten in the US! I have visited Thailand and from there travelled on to Laos, the border is 'relaxed' to say the least, the Thai Police did a really good job in picking up these smugglers.

Animal trafficking for consumption and so-called traditional uses must be stopped. Make habitat for wild animals.

I'm so glad these animals were discovered and seized. I hope that very strict penalties are in order for the ones who had them. The penalties must be so great that taking the tigers and other animals would not be feasible. Thanks for the info, my friend.

I'm glad these animals were saved, the sad part is that there are so many animals that are not.

Two Thai men have been charged with illegal possession of protected animals, driving a truck with month old tiger cubs and many other animals on their way to either Vietnam or China. These two need to spend a lot of time in jail and get a huge fine. If the poachers and trafficers don't get their freedom taken away with long jail times and huge fines, they are never going to get stopped.
Noted with thanks Cher.
