Tiger feast fiend caged

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A BUSI­NESS­MAN has been jailed for killing and eat­ing TIGERS.

The man, known only by his sur­name Xu, made three sep­a­rate trips to the south­ern prov­ince of Guang­dong in China.

Court re­ports show he took at least 15 other peo­ple who would as­sist and watch as he killed the en­dan­gered big cats.

Af­ter mur­der­ing the an­i­mals, Xu would grill their bones and paws, store their penises and cre­ate al­co­hol out of the three tigers’ blood.

One of the slaugh­ters was filmed and later ob­tained by po­lice, who also found tiger meat in Xu’s fridge.

He was sen­tenced to 13 years in prison and fined 1.55 mil­lion yuan – around £200,000.

Chi­nese peo­ple be­lieve tiger meat has healthy prop­er­ties and also works as an aphro­disiac.
