A restaurant in North Eastern China had Amur tiger meat on their menu, a dish which is considered illegal because the animal is endangered species. However, the delicacy turned out to be donkey meat flavoured with the urine of a tiger.

Hufulou restaurant is situated close to the Heidauhezi reserve where tigers are kept was advertising grilled tiger’s meat for $98 per serving. As a complement, liquor infused with tiger bone was offered for $74 for a bottle. Fresh meat was sold at $864 a kilogram, The China Daily reports.
It is illegal to sell tiger meat in China, so the authorities closed the restaurant. However, it turned out later that the customers were offered donkey meat with tiger’s urine instead of a sauce. According to the restaurant’s owner Ma Shikun the meat was flavoured with tiger urine to give the dish that special “tang”.

Authorities confiscated the restaurant’s profits and fined Ma $300. It is not reported what he was fined for, as selling donkey meat is not illegal in China.

At first Ma Shikun claimed that the dishes were cooked from dead tiger meat. But after the investigation he told the truth. The head of the reserve also denied all the accusations saying that he did not sell any dead tigers.

Amur Tiger is one of the most endangered animals in the world. Its population does not exceed 500. Chinese people think that its meat, whiskers, bones and other parts can fill a human with energy, in terms of sexual life as well.

EE - I do too, how do you come up with these comments?
