Five culprits involved in the selling of a body of a dead lion in a wet market in Zhejiang Province were given jail sentences ranging from eight months to five years and six months.
 

The offenders were also fined between 10,000 yuan and 80,000 yuan for the crime of endangering precious and endangered wild animals, a local prosecutor in Wenling, Zhejiang, disclosed recently. Two buyers of four lion legs were dealt with in a separate case.
 

A lion domesticated and bred at a circus in East China's Anhui Province suddenly had difficulty in breathing and died after a failed treatment last January. The circus boss surnamed Li secretly stole the lion's body instead of reporting the incident to the local forestry administration.
 

With the help of his friend surnamed Ma, Li sold the body to two other culprits surnamed Li and Yin at the price of 16,000 yuan. Later, Li and Yin sold four lion legs to a dealer surnamed Zheng at a wet market in Wenling.
 

Zheng further sold one leg to a buyer surnamed Sun and was caught by the local police while trading the other three legs with another buyer surnamed Lin.
 

According to China's Criminal Law, domesticated or bred rare and endangered wild animals are forbidden from being traded or eaten.
 

菜场买到狮肉?马戏团私自贩卖死狮被逮捕

来自安徽的李某经营着一家马戏团。去年,该马戏团里一头专门用来驯养繁殖的狮子因神秘疾病死亡。原本正常的流程应该是向林业部门报告,让林业部门处理,但李某财迷心窍,居然决定私自贩卖狮子的尸体。
 

他将狮子的四条腿卸了下来,将其他身体部分卖给了别人。四条腿则另外卖给了在菜市场卖肉的郑某。郑某也是不怕死,只觉得狮子肉很新奇,一定能卖个好价钱。确实狮子肉的名声马上吸引了几个土大款,几番竞价后,等来的不是“一手交钱一手交货”,而是警方的手铐。
