The CITES Inspection Tiger team together with the Ussurisky Police recently confiscated another tiger skin. The team had been conducting surveillance for over a month before the actual bust took place. According to the intelligence gathered by the rangers, the traders were dealing with tiger skins and other wildlife.
Since the beginning of 2002, two Inspection Tiger teams and two Primorski Customs teams have been rewarded in this manner for confiscating wildlife from local traders.
