A tiger poacher convicted this week in an Indian court and his six accomplices get seven years in jail.

Juhru had been implicated in 14 wildlife crime cases, including six cases of tiger poaching. He has previously been convicted in at least two cases of leopard poaching and one case of tiger poaching in 2003 at Sariska Tiger Reserve. He was sentenced to five years each in the leopard cases, and seven years for the tiger case.

The Wildlife Trust of India assisted in the prosecution.

  1. Great! It’s about time those criminals were given prison sentences, it’s the only language they understand. I hope this is only the beginning.

    • it’s good their getting punished and thanks to th Indian authorities but don’t you think he got of quite lightly

  2. Awesome, this is long over due 🙂

  3. This is really good news and long overdue. I really hope that this will set an example to all other judges who in the past have either given very short or no sentences at all.
    My since thanks to the judge who gave out these sentences
