Tabu, a Bollywood actress who starred in Life of Pi is being charged along with four other actors for the killing of a protected animal.
The poaching case is a 14-year-old and is finally going to trial next month for the shooting of a blackbuck, a protected antelope.
Tabu and the four other actors were shooting a film in 1998 near Jodhpur when the shooting took place.
What's crazy is if they're convicted, they could face up to 6 years in prison.
The shooter, Salman Khan, was also sentenced to a year in jail for shooting two endangered chinkara deer and was sentenced to five years in prison for shooting a blackbuck just days before this more recent shooting.
What's worst about all of this is a Hindu sect who loves nature lives in the area and believes the blackbuck is sacred and is a manifestation of their guru.
We don't understand why anyone would want to shoot poor, defenseless animals anyway, let alone shoot endangered ones.
Maybe they all deserve everything coming their way.
