Each attendee as a parting gift received a bag of fish, caught from a nearby reservoir where conservation laws have banned all fishing, the investigation report said. This salamander ican grow up to two meters long. It’s the world’s largest amphibian. The giant salamander , classed as “critically endangered” on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List of threatened species ,is believed by some Chinese to have anti-ageing properties. However, it’s a delicious plate. Numbers of the Chinese giant salamander significantly declined, mostly die to the human consumption. To clarify what happened at the seafood restaurant where the police officers were, even video security records will be examined. It seems they were filmed with the salamander in hands and riposted with violence. One of the reporters was kicked and slapped; another was scratched bloody. China’s legislature last April approved a law including prison sentences for people caught eating rare wild animals.
