Most private zoos in Taiwan (hell, pretty much anywhere) should be closed, and animals rehoused by professionals in better conditions. For example, did you see the state of the recovery pond they dumped him into?
don't get me started on the Chinese demand for animal parts in general, and specifically towns like Mong La on the Burma/China border.
Still, I suspect they were able to get a reasonable amount for the carcass from the ro yuan guy down at the night market.
