A couple have sparked outrage after skinning and eating endangered animals for YouTube views.
Ah Lin Tuch and her husband Phoun Raty ate a fishing cat, a large lizard, several protected species of birds, a king cobra, a shark, multiple stingrays and frogs in order to make money on the video sharing site, but viewers began reporting the pair after they realised many of their ''meals'' were considered very likely to become extinct in their home country of Cambodia.
The pair were tracked down by the Ministry of Environment and an investigation has been launched into the source of their feast after they claimed to have bought the meat from a market.
Chea Sam Arng, head of the Environment Ministry's General Directorate for Administration of Nature Conservation and Protection, said in a statement: ''We are now in the process of taking legal action against them while the working group is preparing a report on the matter. The animals that were cooked were mostly not on the endangered list, but are protected. Only one species was in danger of extinction.''
