An undercover sting operation on the outskirts of Pretoria police are hoping to catch Pangolin traffickers red-handed.
A small pangolin is found in car. These creatures scales are used in traditional Chinese medicine and its meat is considered a delicacy which is why the illegal trade in Pangolins is booming. That was a hard one.
The Pangolin is now a formal exhibit. So it has to be booked into the police station not physically. But on paper and then booked out with a certain identity number and from there. The Penguin will go to the hospital in Johannesburg and the suspects will appear before a magistrate to face formal charges.
