South Africa Sniffer Dog Intercepts 116kg of Rhino Horn
South African authorities have seized 116kg (256 lbs) of illegal #rhinohorn being smuggled out of the country. The haul of 36 horns and horn fragments, worth about $1.3m (£1m), is believed to be one of the biggest seized in the country in recent years. Customs officials at OR Tambo airport in #Johannesburg say it was sniffed out by Lizzy, a detector dog.
The horns were found tightly packed inside boxes, along with everyday items such as decorations and doormats. The eight boxes were already ready to be shipped to Dubai, the South African Revenue Service (Sars) said in a statement. Via: BBC News
