They were charged with murder by stoning and yet this case will receive very little media interest. Their story, however, highlights just how serious Xinjiang is in preserving another one of its minorities...the snow leopard.

What do you think about China's efforts to preserve the declining population of snow leopards. Harsh or too lenient?

I am thinking if they knew the animal they killed was a snow leopard. If they knew, then they deserved the punishment. If not, I think the punishment was too heavy. See, they were sentenced to 8 to 10 years imprisonment.

Actually, one of them was sentenced to 8 years, the other to 10 years. I can't quite figure out why one was given two more years than the other. Seems a bit odd to me.
