Antelope skins are remain valuable and as such, the poaching continues.

Three poachers of Tibetan antelopes,a highly-endangered species, have been sentenced to jail in southwestern Tibet Autonomous Region, the local government said Thursday.

Lisang and Sangqog, two principals of the case, were sentenced to 13 years in jail and another poacher, Dainqoi, was given four years of imprisonment by the People’s Court of Gerze County in the Ngari Prefecture.

13 year for poaching. I’m very impressed. If only Canada has similar sentences for poachers.
