Words can not describe how infuriated, disgusted and saddened I am that this beautiful 5 yr old male was killed!!!
Pleased to hear that one of the poachers were hurt...karma baby karma!
Their slap on the wrist fine is not enough either "if convicted" ( WTF..if convicted?????!!!! Please.. they are as guilty as hell)

Repeat after me 'if I want a tiger bone than dammit I'm gonna have one even if I have to wipe out the whole species to ease my own suffering'.

I am so glad they caught the evil poachers redhanded.They had better end up in jail.I don't know why they even bother arresting them.Save the courts a trial.If poachers turn up dead,that would really send would be poachers a message.Kill a tiger-end up dead like themWe must save the remaining tigers.They don't want to die either.

I wonder if it's legal to poach a poacher and how much their hides would bring?

Can't get the damn spamsters off!!! Now I'm twice as pi$$ed!!!! I wouldn't have taken the mauled jerk to the hospital!! He deserves every owie he got and then some!! No pity for these money grubbing a-holes!!! As far as I'm concerned, poachers should have a bounty on their heads and be shot on sight! Plus I second everything Ness said.

Disgusting!!! When will these poor excuses for human beings stop!!! And I agree with Gail ~ but then we would need the bail money. But wouldn't it be worth every single penny!!!

THREE YEARS IN PRISON AND A $20,000 FINE ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY NEED TO GIVE THESE PRICKS AT LEAST 20 YEARS!!!!!! Punishments for poaching aren't strict enough! Maybe if they were people would think twice before they do it! Also what the f*** do they mean "if they are convicted?" They sure as hell sounded guilty in the article I just read!
