KOREAN TIGER HUNTER "CHAKHO GAPSA"

A long time ago, a large number of tigers lived in Korea. Wonderful beings but also a cause of great fear for people.

The tigers represented a problem for the whole country and thus the figure of the professional hunter was born.

They were called "chakhogapsa" (tiger hunters) and were public officials who hunted according to a quota system when predations of tigers appeared in rural countries.

When Japan invaded Korea, tiger skin became a precious commodity and this led to the total extinction of these wonderful felines. The "Chakhogapsa" who protected their families and people from the tigers turned into skilled snipers against the Japanese invasion army.

These are the stories that excite us ... and intrigue us
