Somebody call PETA! Russian poacher gladly poses with endangered 6 Siberian Tigers and 46 Bears he killed as "Trophies"

Evgeniy Romanov, a poacher and an influential businessman found himself in hot water when pictures of him posing with one of the six endangered Siberian Tigers he killed made it to the internet. 

Upon investigation and search conducted at one of his properties, the authority dead sea eagles, seven spotted deer, four dead Steller's sea eagles, a cinereous vulture and a mandarin duck.animal skin and further investigations revealed he killed all these animals including forty-six Himalayan Bears as "Trophies" (Bear paws are used in traditional medicine by the Chinese)

The Siberian Tiger is believed to be so close to extinction - there are only about six hundred of it's left on the planet.

Evgeniy Romanov, 52, though avoided jail term but was hit with a record fine of £123,000 (9.3 million rouble fine) after he was found guilty. 
"There are genuine hopes both species will survive in their native habitat, after coming perilously close to extinction in the wild caused substantially by illegal hunting,"- The Siberian Times
After a five-year legal battle, Evgeniy Romanov got away from a criminal conviction after the time lapsed for the police examination, however he was hit by the 9.3 million rouble record-fine.

Since his poaching misuses, Russian laws have been fixed and the populaces of Siberian Tigers and significantly more jeopardized Amur Leopards- of which there are just 80 or so in the wild - are presently rising.
