Tiger, clouded leopard skins among illegal wildlife parts seized in Malaysia

The confiscated animal parts include two entire tiger skins suspected to have come from Malayan tigers (Panthera tigris tigris ), currently listed as critically endangered on the IUCN Red List. The authorities also seized 10 smaller pieces of tiger skin, a clouded leopard (Neofelis nebulosa ) skin, seven bear teeth, 20 bear claws, tails and horns from the antelope-like serow (Capricornis sumatraensis) , wild boar teeth, python skin, and 39 kilograms (86 pounds) of meat, according to a press release by TRAFFIC, the wildlife trade monitoring network. The two complete tiger pelts alone are estimated to be worth 200,000 ringgit ($50,000) each on the black market.
