$30,000.00 Reward

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012
Reward Offered on Hawaiian Monk Seal Killings. Wildlife officials said two of the animals were bludgeoned to death while the third was shot. The death of a fourth seal is also being investigated as suspicious. The deaths are coming as the federal government steps up its efforts to protect the seals, leading to simmering resentment among some fishermen who fear new regulations will trample upon their right to fish. The killings are also happening as the misguided notion spreads that the animals aren’t native to Hawaii and don’t belong here.


The reward was offered by the Humane Society of the United States, Conservation Council for Hawaii, Center for Biological Diversity, Marine Conservation Institute and an anonymous donor.

Sale of Endangered Animals

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

In the ongoing fight against the sale of endangered animals, ABC news reported the following article indicating 12 people in the act of selling endangered animals in Los Angeles this week.

“The items had been sold to undercover agents from the Fish and Wildlife Service and California Department of Fish and Game during an investigation known as Operation Cyberwild, launched in July.

“Our ecosystem is complex and precious. Unfortunately, this delicate system continues to face serious threats, including poaching, the introduction of non-native species, and the illegal sale of endangered species,” said US Attorney Andre Birotte Jr.

Birotte said that as much as two-thirds of illegal sales of endangered animals takes place in the U.S., making the killing of protected animals more profitable. He called the 12 arrests a response to the “alarming trend” of illegal animal sales.”


Tiger Sales:

Wild Tigers are killed and boiled to make an expensive medication used as a traditional pain killer in Vietnam. According to the Tuoi Tre newspaper a restaurant owner was caught rendering a tiger to make “bone paste.” Bone paste sells for a few hundred dollars an ounce. The restaurant owner said she bought the 330-pound tiger for over $8,000.00.
