Customs officials will soon have good food to enjoy.

Humans! Eating anything and everything!

铁血雄鹰之:

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!

675845836:

First time I’ve seen a bear paw.

lnbxs:

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!

亮剑1976:

This bear paw is really big. If the bear was alive and took a swipe, I bet it could crush a person’s head.

维珍:

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?

eidebobo:

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].

反对派临时跟贴局 [网易浙江省网友]:

LD, how should this bear paw be handled? Steamed in broth or braised in soy sauce?!

mydogisalex [网易香港网友]:

Shameless humans… In this world, there is nothing more frightening than man.

鸭脖拉罕 [网易上海市网友]:

Were they destroyed? If they weren’t destroyed, then they may end up on the dining table of government leaders.

還我河山 [网易河南省网友]:

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?

疯刘桑 [网易上海市网友]:

The rabble sure don’t have the extra money to go eat these things!!! How about first finding out where they were headed to!

norules [网易北京市网友]:

The shipper is quite stupid too, and also, how do the police normally handle the things they confiscate?

火星X网友 [网易广东省揭阳市网友]: (responding to above)

Don’t worry! It won’t be wasted!

网易四川省成都市网友:

Punish severely.
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.

還我河山 [网易河南省网友]:

Shipped into the country, so who then is the buyer?

大片儿刀砍鬼子 [网易广东省深圳市网友]:

A half-year old bear paw can still be eaten?

近视700度 [网易山东省潍坊市网友]:

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?!

loverlinzhunv [网易广东省佛山市网友]:

How come no one has noticed the police officer’s leather jacket, I’m so envious!!

网易上海市网友:

Truly TM inhuman.

网易上海市网友:

Everyone look at the third photo, has Fatty Kim III [Kim Jong-un] come to China to be a police officer???

黄易马赛克部小李 [网易浙江省网友]:

This was meant to be given to a government leader/official.

苯甲醇 [网易北京市网友]:

This whole thing is just going from one government leader’s mouth to another government leader’s mouth.

城管局张局长 [网易河南省安阳市网友]:

I only care about how this stuff is going to be handled…
