Officials eating endangered species

Officials caught eating an endangered giant salamander in China, even though their legislature passed a bill last April approving a law that included prison sentences for people caught eating rare wild animals.

 

It's silly to accuse a race of people, but I sure understand accusing those in power who believe they are better than anyone else.  Do the crime, do the time.  Boys- take them away!

That's shameful to harm/kill something so majestic. I studied Cryptobranchus alleganiensis aka hellbenders when I lived in the Ozarks, one of 3 of the worlds giant salamanders the other 2 occur in Japan and China Andrias davidianus is the largest of the 3 growing to 6 ft. These animals are living fossils and should be protected. I hope they prosecute any one involved.
