A trafficker arrested with 15 kg of pangolin scales

Frisco Aimé led the team in this swift operation. Two weeks later another giant pangolin scales trafficker was arrested with 14 kg of scales as he attempted to sell the contraband. He belongs to a wildlife trafficking ring that buys giant pangolin scales from poachers, killing the pangolins in the Deng Deng National Park.

Pangolins are the most traded animals in the world and rising demand in china results in organized illegal trade threatening pangolins across Africa.
