Citizen Hao Jinsong:
Thanks for your concern and support for our work.
Notice is hereby given that the “South China tiger photograph” issue has entered the investigatory phase, and we will publish related information when that work is finished.
Despite the 51 Chinese characters in the main body, this reply apparently disclosed little about the ongoing investigation.
On June 15, over 20 days after he submitted an application to the Shaanxi Provincial Bureau of Forestry (SPBF) for details of its investigation into the authenticity of a group of photographs featuring a wild South China tiger, lawyer Hao Jinsong finally received the above reply.
