#Nepal arrests 15 villagers for eating a leopard. Sure there are easier ways to treat gout...by @frankietaggart

KATHMANDU (AFP) - A group of 15 Nepalese villagers, including a 14-year-old child, have been arrested for eating a leopard in the belief that the meat could guard against gout disease, an official said on Wednesday. The group said they found the dead spotted leopard by a temple near their village, 90 minutes' walk from the nearest road in the Mahabharat mountains in western Nepal, forestry officer Hari Paudel told AFP. 'They were charged with eating the meat of an endangered animal. The law requires them to inform the district forest office when they find a dead or injured animal,' he said. 'One of the villagers had gout and he believed that he would be cured by eating the meat. The other villagers thought it would work as a preventative measure.' Gout, a painful joint disease, is a form of arthritis caused when acid builds up in blood and causes inflammation.
