Double trouble It was already bad enough that a Chinese boat crashed into the Tubbataha reef, a protected coral reef off the coast of the Philippines, but what the coast guard found inside increased massively the size of the environmental disaster: 400

Good for them. They lost their boat, hopefully lose the licence. It's the chance you take when you involve yourself in an unethical, illegal act.

Surely we can issue a greater punishment.

Interesting critter, have NEVER seen any thing about it before and the Chinese need to learn to eat other things! They're just destroying so much animal and sea life, shame on them!

Mary S. has the right idea. New evidence suggests pangolin meat will cause infertility, cancer, and early onset alzheimers.

Read this on yahoo news the other day and shared with coworkers. Wish it were on major TV network news!

What a tragedy; for the coral and for the pangolins. The people involved should all be thrown in jail forever. But, as the article points out, these are probably only the middle men. We just need stronger laws, world wide.

Good Old China......their population will really go down when all the animals and fish are gone. Unfortunately, ours will too. We should all learn to eat insects for protein....especially cockroaches. So many we would never run out of them.

Yes, their boat crashes but, the animal's live's were still lost.

Surely, Chinese will never admit that they are destroying our planet. However, they will have to admit that after they have killed every creature on earth for 'Traditional Medicine' that they will have to resort to canibalism and eat each other. Already the poor ones are being sacrificed in one way or another. Life is cheap for the poor in China, but it also means a death sentence for the profit of a few communist officials / cum, become capitalists. Every tyranny or dictatorship will end in absolute humiliation, sooner or later. History!

So sick of chinese killing everything! They should live in a planet with no living organisms, except for themselves.
