Outrage Ensues In Cambodia After Ah Lin Tuch & Her Husband Phoun Raty Are Exposed For Eating Endangered Animals On YouTube

A young woman in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, ignited massive outrage after posting videos of herself skinning, cooking, and eating animals on YouTube.

As if that is not difficult enough to digest, many of the animals Ah Lin Tuch and her husband Phoun Raty consumed on their Natural Life TV YouTube channel are protected species, while one, a rare fishing cat, was listed as endangered on the 2010 ICUN Red List. In 2016, it was listed as Vulnerable.

The couple, who claim that they purchased the wildlife at local markets, was eventually located by the country’s Ministry of Environment after horrified viewers realized that many of the animals, including a lizard, a large heron, and other species of birds were in fact protected.

While clips of Tuch eating the rare animals have been removed from the channel, there is reportedly still footage of her eating frogs, cobra, shark, and a stingray.

According to Metro, the pair intended to earn a living from the social media channel which had so far earned them $500.00 for Google sponsored advertisements displayed on the clips.

“I don’t even know what kind of animals or birds we used or their impact on wildlife conservation,” noted Tuch in the article. ”I bought the wildlife at Preak Phnov and we started filming our videos in December. Now I have already admitted my mistake.”

A “mistake” that should never be made again…by anyone!

The government is investigating the couple, as well as the sources of the wildlife, and may take legal action against them.

We hope Justice is served!
