Police in southwest China's Yunnan Province said Saturday that they had seized a batch of illegal wildlife products.

Police officers found a vehicle transporting suspicious wildlife products on Wednesday night and reported to local forestry police.

A box carrying pangolin skin and scales, barking-deer horns, porcupine spines, Himalayan blue sheep horns, elephant skin and wild animal gall bladders were found, weighing a total of more than nine kilograms.

A suspect, surnamed Huang, was detained and said the products were purchased from a foreign trader near the border Wednesday morning. Huang planned to sell the products.

A police investigation is ongoing. Enditem
