The final suspect in the national park tiger death case, while claiming he was not involved in the killings, has been arrested, after four other suspects surrendered and confessed to the killing of the two big cats in the Thong Pha Phum national park in Kanchanaburi province in early January.

 

The fifth suspect, a 66-year-old a villager from Pilok sub-district of Thong Pha Phum district, was arrested last night and escorted to Thong Pha Phum police station, to join the four others. He denied involvement in the killing or skinning of the two protected tigers, claiming he went into the national park to camp with the other four.

 

A senior national park official has dismissed the claims of five men that they are just cattlemen and not hunters.

Hunters with muzzel loaders hunting tiger for fun ?  If they got that kinda nerves I'd be okay with a slap on the hand and promise not to do it again.  Be different if they were using modern high power rifles with scopes.  I believe the poor saps. Check their homes, bet they are dirt poor saps at that.

If they just killed the tigers to protect their cattle, why had the hides been meticulously skinned like prepared for sale?

Why would you not do that, waste of a kill.

 

And NO ... they were poachers, and I don't believe their BS.
