Residents in Sayingpan town, Yunnan province this Monday captured, skinned, cooked and devoured a wolf that made the mistake of entering their village to hunt for chickens.
According to the villagers, two wolves snuck into the village on Monday. While one of the animals managed to escape, its mate was not so lucky.
A villager surnamed Zheng said the wolf was sticking its head into a 1.5-meter deep triangular cave when the villagers pelted it to death with stones and sticks. Next to the cave they spotted a bit of black wool and sheep bones.
Fearing that the other wolf would come back and take its revenge, the villagers sat and waited until 9:00 p.m. that night. They decided to cook their wolf and eat it the next day.
While around 50 to 60 villagers were involved in the killing, only some 30 of them dared to taste the wolf meat. They said it tasted not too bad.
The wolf, weighing 22.5 kilograms, was believed to be a female. Her pelt was 1.2 meters long measuring from the ears to the bottom, and 20 centimeters long from the nose to the ears.
