Any person that gets caught red handed should be executed or imprisioned for LIFE!!!! The reason these people do these disgusting crimes against animals is due mostly for the chinese medicine market! If the Chinese were told that eating your own feces would make you horny and live longer they would do it! People cannot keep killing animals that are endangered or are virtually going extinct. Please stop this madness~~

The hunting of wild creatures, in any country, is appalling and barbaric and the perpetrators should have the stiffest of penalties when caught. I feel the only thing governments are lead by is their economy. We need to hurt them through this, by pledging not to support their countries economy in any way. This is the only way governments will sit up and take notice.

Too little too late. The Nepal Govt. has known about this trade for years, what have they done about it? No doubt profited from the cash flow.
