This is a situation where a part of me want the men to be punished severely because of their crime in killing the tiger cub, but another part of me also want to rescue the men... I mean, yes, the men were wrong for killing the animals, but who am I to judge whose life is worth and whose life is not worth saving?

I think the Indonesian police must attempt to rescue the men without hurting the tiger... I sure hope no tiger will die in the rescue attempt... Especially because this is an endangered species...

It is always a good day,
When the animal hunters become prey!

Sorry, but I saw Giana's story first and almost missed this one. The comment I made there still stands. These men are basically cowards. How can we be certain there were four tigers? Victims are notoriously known for not giving correct info when it comes to numbers of attackers. Yes, villagers said there were four - were there? We know there was at least one - the mother of the cub killed??

Of course, we can't deny what is almost certain to happen now. There will be a tiger hunt, maybe even government sanctioned, because the tiger(s) is a mankiller. So one or more tigers will be hunted and killed, without proof they are the "killers". Too bad the hunters don't have the same fate, as they are also killers.
