Description

A haul of taxidermy animals including a tiger’s head, monkey skulls, reptiles and stuffed birds of prey have been seized by the authorities. They were recovered by officers from the National Crime Agency at a residential address and business premises in Newton Abbot, Devon, on Thursday. The operation follows the seizure by the UK Border Force of a chameleon preserved in formaldehyde at the Heathrow Worldwide Distribution Centre postal hub last month. The reptile, which had been shipped from the US, was found to be a controlled species, meaning strict rules are in place to prevent illegal trading. It led NCA officers, supported by specialist officers from the UK Border Force, to Devon, where a 40-year-old man was arrested at his home. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/may/22/endangered-species-found-in-devon-raid http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com
