Netizens described the act as an “unforgivable sin”, calling the man “monster,” and “beast,” according to Sina News. Some did a so-called “human flesh search” to locate the suspect and disclose his personal details. Sources said the man is a tycoon from an inland city, with business interests in Tibetan real estate, and said to be the only person who owns a Ferrari in Lhasa.
The Tibetan wild ass or kiang is a rare animal. On August 11, local police arrested the suspect Chen Haisheng and his pal Li Ming in Zada County. Based on the preliminary investigation, the men chased down and ran over the donkey two days earlier, and Chen cut out its organs with a knife. Then they took the body back to their company’s construction site, and ate it with fellow workers.
