Brothers Wang Wenlin and Wang Wencai who shot a wild giant panda in Yunnan, China have been prosecuted, Chinese authorities said yesterday. A third man Li Kequan was also prosecuted for trading the panda’s meat and paws.
The Wang brothers had shot the animal last December in the hills outside their village, said Xinhua news agency. The killing took place 5km south of Tongluoba National Forest Park.
The panda, an adult female, likely strayed from the nature reserve.

The Wangs had tracked the panda to her hiding place.
After she was injured by the first shot, the panda tried to escape by climbing a tree. Wong then shot it again causing the dead panda to fall out of the tree which was her hiding place.
The panda was skinned for her pelt while the kill yielded total of 35kg of meat. Her four paws were sold for 4,800 yuan (RM3,300).

The Chinese eat dog meat too.
Dogs are burned alive with blowtorch or boiled alive during the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in Shaanxi, China.
I’m not surprised by the summary decision of the Guan Eng administration to cull Penang stray dogs rather than vaccinate them.
Nor am I shocked by the callousness displayed by Penangites who are DAP staunch supporters in disregarding the cruelty inflicted on the cornered and culled animals.
The DAP-led regime has no compassion for animals and nor for political animals. ABU (Asal Bukan Umno) is the campaign to kill / cull Umno.
A chapter of the campaign had unfolded on Aug 29-30 recently. Umno halal meat will make for a tasty dish, yum, yum.
