‘Cannibal Monster’ Arrested In China

TAMPA (CBS Tampa) — The United States isn’t the only country dealing with cannibalism.

A Chinese man called the “cannibal monster” was arrested two weeks ago for the murder and mutilation of at least 20 people in Yunnan province.

Several reports indicate 56-year-old Zhang Yongming ate his victims, sold the victims’ flesh to others and also fed them to his dog. Many of the victims were young boys.

Hong Kong’s The Standard reports that authorities found wine bottles with eye balls inside of them and pieces of flesh hanging in his home.

Yongming – who was convicted of murder in 1978 – was released from prison in 1997.

In North Korea, the Yonhap News Agency reported earlier this month that three people were executed over the past few years for cannibalism. A man was executed for killing a girl and eating her in December 2009 and a father and son were killed in 2006 after being found guilty of cannibalism.

The victim of the gruesome attack in Miami, 65-year-old Ronald Poppo, remains in critical condition after 31-year-old Rudy Eugene attacked him and ate his face on Saturday. Police shot and killed Eugene at the scene after ordering him to stop.
