If you’re in China this summer, and the heat gives rise to a mighty thirst, just visit one of the local wildlife parks for a nice tall glass of tiger wine… That’s not some brand name: staff of two Chinese parks recently offered visitors a beverage made from tiger carcasses soaked in rice wine. The problem? Tigers are an endangered species, and trade in any of their parts — including elements of soaked carcasses — is internationally prohibited. But that hasn’t stopped these tipplers, who see tiger wine as a cure for arthritis and rheumatism.
Despite the temptation, the Worldwide Scoop staff politely declined these servings of Chateau de Cat Corpse — we’ll happily stick to Red Bull and vodka.
