Now, prove to me they were, indeed, desperate.
From what I could tell, those people looked well nourished. Especially the man in the white shirt holding the knife

Imagine a 300 pound man ate VERY little for a month. Or maybe nothing for 2 weeks. What would he look like? He would still be a fatty

We get your stance allready, which is really weak so just stop it.
Cows are not the same, so just stop it allready.
I'm guessin you have some sort of pride involved with all this, maybe not but your ignorance is astounding.
There is no justification for killing an endangered species whoever you are, it's childish to point and say, "well he did it too".
They obviously have other meens of feeding themselves, they by no meens look impoverished

See, why I say prove it is because I didn't make the claim they were, indeed starving.
Why I say they are not:
They would be looking out for the kids and/or their families and not just themselves.
If starving, they probably would have needed more manpower to get an animal that heavy on the shore.
If they were smart and starving, they'd have the press take footage of their poor kids while eating the turtle meat.
The Perspective of the Turtle Blood Consumer
Turtle blood consumers wait in the market for a cup of fresh blood. These are mostly young women who believe it will make them gain weight (It is traditional in this area that thin women are not considered attractive), and also some of them believe that turtle blood will make them more fertile. Fewer men drink turtle blood; those that do believe it to be an aphrodisiac and a general tonic. The price of a cup of blood is about 0.25US$. According to the Islamic religion, drinking animal's blood is forbidden, although some people claim that this does not apply to the sea turtle because they are sea creatures.The discussion groups indicated that with increasing educational standards, sea turtle blood consumption is slowly decreasing.
