外文标题：Chinese tiger eater jailed for 13 years
BEIJING: A Chinese businessman has been sent to jail for commiting a rare crime, which is drinking the blood of tigers. The accused, a wealthy real estate developer, has been sentenced to 13 years in jail after investigators found he had bought and eaten three tigers besides drinking their blood.
Prosecutors told the court in Guangdong province in southern China that Xu had developed "a special hobby of grilling tiger bones, boning tiger paws, storing tiger penis, eating tiger meat and drinking tiger blood alcohol".
Police found eight pieces of animal meat and bones from a refrigerator at the home of the accused, surnamed Xu. Some of the pieces were later identified as tiger parts, including a penis. They also found 16 gecko lizards and a cobra.
Tiger bones have long been an ingredient of traditional Chinese medicine. Many Chinese believe that penis and bones of tigers and some other animals can boost men's sexual capacity. But there is no scientific evidence to support the claims.
Besides jail sentence, Xu was fined $250,000. The court also sent 15 associates of Xu to jail for terms between five and six and a half years besides imposing smaller fines. They appealed and lost at a higher court, which upheld the earlier ruling on Monday, the government-run news portal, gxnews.com.cn said on Tuesday.

Modi also drank the blood of Katuas during Godhra riots why no action against him ?
I do not understand why people relish the meat of endangered animals. Does the term endangered give additional taste to the meat? Or is it something to boast about? Our cow lovers can take a lesson from this and give similar punishment to our beef eaters.
