The Daily Mail reports that a woman in China received hate mail after she skinned and cooked a cat, then posted the video to a social networking site. The Mar. 26 news story also tells of the virulent reaction the video and photos of the cat soup making process received on Weibo, the Chinese version of Facebook.

The cat killed, skinned and cooked by Li Jinbang was said to be a friend's pet who was injured.

Li Jinbang apparently killed her friend's cat after it became injured, and documented the entire event in photos and videos, including how she skinned the cat to make soup. Her initial post read simply: "Hey, I managed to catch a tiger and ate it."

Li Jinbang cheerily discussed her process for turning her friend's cat, which appears to be a wild cat, into soup.

Indeed, the cat appears to be less of a domestic breed than a wild cat. The cat's coat is spotted and the face is elongated.

After hate mail and threats rolled in regarding the post, Jinbang defended herself by saying: 'It was a perfectly lawful killing and I killed the cat and ate it without doing anything illegal."

Although officially frowned upon, according to news surrounding the story, 4 million cats are eaten in the China each year. Should Western culture be more understanding of others that eat animals like dogs, cats and guinea pigs?

No. She is a disgusting human being. Instead of helping the animal; she eats it. She should be fed to some animals. The world would be better without someone who is egocentric and cannot understand how horrible her actions are. Her inner beauty is displayed by her outward beauty (not)

The poor thing looks terrified. Asian Leopard Cats are normally shy around people. I just wish they wouldn't have picked such a special, harder to find kitty if the are going to do it.

I am sorry but eating cats or dogs is very cruel to me. I cant stand the idea of someone eating them. It makes me sick thinking of what she did eating a beautiful animal like a cat. To be that is abuse....I am a cat and dog lover and I try to save them. But I know to each their own. I cant judge them....
