Customs officials will soon have good food to enjoy.
Humans! Eating anything and everything!
Every half kilogram is only 500 yuan or so, how many kilograms can a bear paw be? Is it worth the risk???
Rich people are becoming more and more evil/depraved with what they eat these days, eating bear paws, eating cat meat, even fetus soup!
First time I’ve seen a bear paw.
I’ve had bear paw before, just one bite, it was too greasy, but I didn’t think it was that different from other meat!
This bear paw is really big. If the bear was alive and took a swipe, I bet it could crush a person’s head.
I really don’t understand what’s so good about bear paw that so many people want to go eat wild game. They’re not bothering anyone, why go kill them?
I’m more interested in how they’re going to destroy the bear paws…

At first glance, I thought that person had grown a beast’s paw [on himself].
LD, how should this bear paw be handled? Steamed in broth or braised in soy sauce?!
Shameless humans… In this world, there is nothing more frightening than man.
Were they destroyed? If they weren’t destroyed, then they may end up on the dining table of government leaders.
Without demand, there wouldn’t be the slaughter. What I want to know is, just what kind of people in this country have the ability and means to buy these things?
The rabble sure don’t have the extra money to go eat these things!!! How about first finding out where they were headed to!
The shipper is quite stupid too, and also, how do the police normally handle the things they confiscate?

Don’t worry! It won’t be wasted!
Don’t just punish the killer, because as long as there is a market, there will be a source. Without demand, there is no supply. They all have to be punished severely.
Shipped into the country, so who then is the buyer?
A half-year old bear paw can still be eaten?
Corrupt officials once again have fresh stock to eat. What puzzles me is, why is that those who earn the most income are corrupt officials, those who have the most relaxed work are corrupt officials, those who have the most women are corrupt officials, those who have the most exotic delicacies are still corrupt officials… why?!
How come no one has noticed the police officer’s leather jacket, I’m so envious!!
Truly TM inhuman.
Everyone look at the third photo, has Fatty Kim III [Kim Jong-un] come to China to be a police officer???
This was meant to be given to a government leader/official.
This whole thing is just going from one government leader’s mouth to another government leader’s mouth.
I only care about how this stuff is going to be handled…
