Residents of Ayia village in Yunnan stewed and ate a wolf after it was discovered eating one of their chickens. Elderly villager Luo Xin said that she came across two wolves eating the domestic fowl, and so raised the alarm. Soon after, 50-60 villagers armed with clubs gathered and chased one of the animals to a small rock crevice, while the other escaped. Being too big to enter, the wolf was beaten to death, and then promptly stewed and eaten, although some chose not to try it. One netizen said the wolf probably only took the risk to enter the village for food as humans had likely already ruined its environment.
