Tigers auctioned in Viet Nam

The bodies of two Tigers were allegedly auctioned by Hanoi Zoo, Viet Nam, to a wildlife trader, in contravention of national and international law, reports Xinhua Net. The Deputy Director of the zoo told a reporter the carcases had been sold to raise funds to buy new animals, but said he knew  it was against the laws to do so. The buyer was one of two men arrested on 7th January  after two dead Tigers were found in their car and a further 4 frozen Tiger carcases found in a house.
