We've yet to learn what China intends to do with the seizure. I imagine they could be in a quandary..Will they destroy them as we would do or will they allow them to be used?

They must put more effort into stopping the poaching or else they'll be extinct soon!!!

Just like here , you have to tell people who lie to shut up and prove it. Make the guy that claims that Pangolin Scales will cure anything and make him and the people that buy these products look stupid. These poor pangolins don't stand a chance with so many people out there looking to make a buck on slaughter.
