Four Arrested In Nepal For Illegal Wildlife Trade

KATHMANDU, May 5 (Bernama) — The Nepali Police have arrested four people along with six sets of tiger skin from a forest in Kanchanpur district in far-western Nepal, some 500 km west of Kathmandu.

Quoting a media report, China’s XINHUA news agency reported Monday that a police team seized six pieces of tiger skins from the six people Sunday.

Each piece could fetch up to 500,000 Nepali rupees (US$7,812) in the illegal market, the police said.

The arrested have been reportedly involved in illegal wildlife trade for the last 15 years.
