2,000 smuggled turtles discovered by Chinese authorities

The Shanghai Customs on Wednesday said more than 2,000 turtles had been intercepted from smugglers, which include some threatened species such as the black pond turtles. The Customs said that on Nov. 19 last year after they opened some suspicious boxes and check the goods, they found “a great number of little turtles beneath the crabs”. They “counted them and there are more than 2,000 turtles ”. The case has been handed over to the anti-smuggling department for further investigation, and the turtles were sent to zoos in Shanghai.
