Tiger skin trade in China exposed

Posted in October 2009

Covert filming by the Environment Investigation Agency shows traders selling skins of tigers and other rare animals such as snow leopards.

The skins are sold as luxury items and are used for clothes and home decor.

The campaigning group has published its investigation a few days before an international summit on big cat conservation in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Buying and selling big cat skins and body parts is illegal in China.
