Good thing that man's behind bars. We need tougher illegal wildlife trading laws. 3 years is not equal to the countless tigers who were murdered for this bloody exchange.

Noted Tks. Simone..I glad they got the bastard, maybe they should feed him to the tigers as pay back...Three years is nearly not enough time in my books, I'd through him in jail and throw the keys away for good. I'm trying to be nice..If it was up to me Cement Booties and a very deeeeep lake..

Sentence not long enough or harsh enough. But good news to hear he is locked up for the time being.

I hope this evil guy is put away forever so the tigers can live their lives freely. Tiger trade is one of the major reasons they are becoming extinct. Tiger trade needs to be banned. We are fighting for the tigers and will keep on fighting!

Someone who understands Asian culture needs to come up with an insult related to the use of tiger parts as medicine, as a way of discouraging its use. Like, "Have you spent enough money on tiger bone to get an erection yet?" or "Are you still wasting money on tiger parts? i have a fresh unicorn that costs so much more..",

Three years is not enough time and if he behaves in prison he may really serve half of that time. In Bangedesh
the cabinet approved jail terms from two years to 12 years for killing endangered snakes and animals including tigers.

The minimum jail term will be two years for killing pythons and crocodiles and a maximum of 12 years for killing tigers and elephants
