A trafficker with 4 giant pangolins arrested

A trafficker with 4 giant pangolins was arrested in Uganda. EAGLE Uganda team and police arrested the trafficker in swift operation while he was trying to sell the animals. He has been trafficking pangolins for decades, so he is implicated in a death of thousands of these strictly protected animals. The arrest happened in the same part of Uganda, where 9 traffickers with over 80 kg pangolin scales were arrested last June. Pangolins are rapidly driven to extinction, as the booming illegal trade threatening them is on an exponential increase.
