Expertise with WWF experts found: three feet, which tried to take out Russian citizen of China, belong to two Amur tigers. And this means that the population of the Amur tiger has lost two more rare cats.
In Primorye, employees Ussuri customs officials have detained a citizen of China, which is on the body with adhesive tape hid three legs, packed in plastic bags. According to the press service DVTU attempts of illegal movement of derivatives occurred on the Russian-Chinese border checkpoint " border checkpoint ". Under current law the goods, the total weight of which amounted to about 1.6 kg, were seized and sent for examination. For narushitelnitsy prosecuted under Part 2 of Article 16.1 of CAO Russia " Concealment of goods from customs control. "
" According to a examination, a guest from the Middle Kingdom was trying to take home three tiger paw. Moreover, it was found that two of them are left hind paws, that is, can not belong to the same animal. Thus, it is the saddest thing - the remains belong to two tigers - says program coordinator of WWF Russia Amur branch biodiversity, Ph.D., member of expert Sergey Aramilev. - Paws inhibited by generally accepted in the so-called Tibetan medicine, fresh-dry method technique. The two hind legs belong to an adult male, but may belong to third claw as an adult female and young male. "

Over the past two weeks, law enforcement and customs officers in the Maritime region revealed the nature of the unlawful seizure of at least four species of Amur tiger, and, perhaps, and more. We remind you that the murder of the Amur tiger, like the leopard - a criminal offense, punishable under Art. 258 of the Criminal Code, as well as a claim of 500 thousand rubles.

" Special thanks to the public on environmental inspection of the customs officers who stopped the offense, and experts from the customs. It is clear that these legs - part of the party, it is important and necessary to determine where the rest of the skeletons of tigers. Unfortunately, current legislation does not allow it to do quickly - adds Sergey Aramilev . - promised at the International Tiger Forum in St. Petersburg, changes to existing laws and were not accepted. In particular, the introduction of fauna and flora listed in the Red Book of Russia, in Appendix 1 of CITES, and falling under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, CITES, the list of strategically important goods, restricted circulation, according to Article 226.1 of the Criminal Code - it priority. Without it difficult to adequately punish poachers and smugglers who prey on the " live "product."

SOB's, Yet again the Masters (of war) destroy the world that the rest of us have to live in. When are we finally and universally going to create a system where ALL our rulers, governments and those who 'do business' with them are accountable and held responsible, or like everything else shall we just wait until it's too late?

The russians usually have no problem sending "enemies of the state" to siberian jails to do hard labor. Well, this bastard should get life there...and be fined. They are one of the most endangered animals in the world and the chinese have no conscience about killing them. God, I hate those people.

We cannot say that the chinese are ignorant. Ignorance implies lack of knowledge and you cannot convince me, by all that is holy, that they are not aware of what they are doing !!!! BULLS**T - they KNOWINGLY and WILLINGLY slaughter all these animals. It is not just the chinese - japan, korea etc, etc. If they ALL disappeared off the face of the earth, I for one would be a much happier person !!

Glad this lady got caught, but I think their laws do not go far enough. It is unlawful to kill these beautiful Amur tigers and leopards, so I think they should get jail time. Too bad that it takes so much time to punish poachers.
Just another animal that the Asians think have medicinal/magical powers. Truly a shame.
Thank you for this article, Cher.
