Hong Kong Customs Seize Millions of Dollars in Endangered Species Cargo

Hong Kong customs officials have seized a shipment of illegal ivory, rhino horns and leopard skins worth $5.3 million in the territory's second big bust of endangered species products in a month. The haul is also the latest in a string of big ivory seizures over the past year in the southern Chinese city. Acting on a tip from customs officials in mainland China, authorities at Hong Kong's port confiscated 1,120 ivory tusks, 13 rhino horns and five leopard skins weighing a total of 2,266 kilograms (4,997 pounds), said Vincent Wong, customs' head of ports and maritime command.
