Poachers Busted, Too Late for Clouded Leopard
Police in Thailand arrested two poachers after seizing the remains of tigers from a truck passing through a tourist area. The tigers were believed to be smuggled from Malaysia and were on the way to China. In the photo below from The Daily Mail Online, note that there is also a clouded leopard carcass although its presence was not mentioned in the article. This photo is shocking, but important to see to understand the real-life impact of the endangered wildlife trade.
