Tiger Bone Wine sold in Siberian Tiger Forest Zoo

A CCTV journalist called Harbin Siberian Tiger Forest Zoo to enquire
about TB wine and was told to go down to the premise to have a look
at the products. Upon arrival, a lady staff said that they didn't
have any TB wine. The journalist then barged into an office and found
bottles of TB wine. The TB wine were all labelled as 'strong bone
wine'. None of the wine had any production license numbers or
additional description on them. All of this was captured on video.
The journalist then informed the local SFA and when the authorities
arrived, the manager had already moved the TB boxes elsewhere. When
asked about the TB wine that the journalist had seen and filmed
earlier that day, the manager denied everything! In the middle of the
retail area, there was also a tank that had been boarded up. The SFA
later removed the boards to discover the bones of an animal steeped
in wine. Sample of the bones were reportedly sent to a lab to
ascertain the species.
