....."It is believed that this 'shipment' of Pangolins originated from Sumatra Indonesia, and was destined for China, where these highly endangered wild animals would be eaten by the rich and corrupted, while their scales would be used as traditional Chinese medicine," ....

The day will come - when they all will c h o k e on it!!!!!

Thanks Dan.

Purtroppo per un trasporto salvato, chissà quanti animali sono stati portati alla loro tragica fine, senza che nessuno si accorgesse. Mi piacerebbe sapere cosa è successo, alla persona a cui sono stati requisiti. Grazie Dan.

Revolting, so glad they were seized. Maybe they will not be used for food this time! Disgusting.

Thanks Dan. It is a double crime. First to treat any animal the way these poor pangolins were treated (?) Is something to once again be ashamed of being human. Aggravating: is an animal under immense threat of extinction.
