Endangered stuffed Tigers and elephant tusks destroyed at Indonesian square

Stuffed Sumatran tiger pelts, ivory and other wildlife trophies have been seized by authorities and burned in a bid to fight illegal poaching and the trade of endangered animal products in Indonesia.

Disturbing pictures show melting taxidermy bodies, tusks, bones and the pelts of several other endangered animals which were seized by Indonesian officials and burned in Banda Aceh on Monday.

The Indonesian Forestry Ministry officials and Aceh's Nature Conservation Agency hope that burning the illegal products will help raise awareness of the shocking issue and help fight against the estimated $19billion industry.  See link below to read the report in the Daily Mail.
