Animal parts seized

Illegal wildlife parts – including animal horns, claws, teeth, bones, and the skins of leopards and tigers – were seized by the Burmese police force in Muse on Saturday. Authorities searched the house of a 53-year old man in the town on the China-Burma border after receiving a tip off, according to Global New Light of Myanmar. The action was taken by police officers and officials from the Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry. The trade in wildlife parts has risen significantly in recent years.
