Nepal: Two Rhino Horn Traders Arrested


Nepal authorities have arrested two rhino horn dealers identified as Tej BK and Pramod Adhikari.

The Himalayan Times stated the two suspects were trying to sell a rhino horn to an “unidentified client” over the phone.

In a separate incident, officials in Nepal also arrested Bishnu Tamang with a leopard skin.

Unfortunately, big cat trafficking is on the rise.

For example, as tiger populations have decreased, lion bone trade has increased significantly over the past few years.
