Indonesia: Tiger smugglers get off with light sentence
JAMBI, Indonesia — A pair of wildlife traffickers were sentenced to eight months imprisonment here after authorities caught them with a bevy of illegal animal parts, including several Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) skins.
The rare big cat is listed as Critically Endangered by the IUCN, with only a few hundred left in the wild.
