Youtube Couple Become Famous For Hunting, Skinning, And Eating Endangered Animals

This couple has stirred up quite the controversy after posting some disturbing footage to their Youtube channel of them cooking up some animals... some of which are endangered. 

It's no secret that the meat you find in the supermarket was once an animal. For most of us in first world countries, we have the luxury of not witnessing the the whole process that comes before the food ends up on the table.

In other less developed countries, people rely less on supermarkets and actually go out and capture what they consume to keep costs low. Some may call it barbaric, while others claim feel that by doing so, the hunter is taking full responsibility for their actions.

Some animals shouldn't be hunted

One couple from Cambodia decided to share their way of life with the world by posting videos of the end-to-end process of their meals, from hunt to table. The couple also made a small profit of their videos which they used to support themselves.

However, the couple is now under fire as viewers have identified several endangered animals being hunted in their videos. 'We are now in the process of taking legal action against them while the working group is preparing a report on the matter', says Chea Sam Arng, Environment Ministry’s General Directorate for Administration of Nature Conservation and Protection. 'The animals that were cooked were mostly not on the endangered list, but are protected. Only one species was in danger of extinction'.

In some less developed nations, should they be expected to know what they are or are not allowed to eat? Or does their hunger and well-being come first?
