Largest wildlife product bust in ten years

  • January 23, 2014

Jan 22: Forest public security officials of Yunnan (southwest China) announced that they busted the province’s largest wildlife products trafficking case in 10 years on January 10th. A total of 335 illegal wildlife products were seized, including skins from three tigers, and more than 100 lion bones and an Asian elephant skin, all under China’s national first-class protection. Among the seized items were ivory trinkets, bear paws, live pangolins and stuffed birds and animals.
