Biggest ever seizure of pangolin scales

Hong Kong Customs seized a container en route from Nigeria to mainland China with ivory and pangolin scales worth HK$62 million

The container was believed to be destined for mainland China, for use in traditional medicine and  sculptures.

The haul included more than 8.2 tonnes of scales from thousands of endangered pangolins, with an estimated street value of HK$42 million.

It was the biggest seizure of pangolin scales, by value AND weight, ever in the city.

 Somebody please nuke China
