According to this story, a variety of critically endangered species of wildlife are being openly sold at a shop on the island of Sumatra, which is part of the island nation of Indonesia.
An orangutan costs $200 and a leopard cat $25 to $50. In all, some 15 endangered species, all in cramped in cages, were on display one recent day. The shop pretends to be a zoo, but the writer of the Mongabay story found out the truth.
Still, his story is unlikely to make a difference. The animals are free to catch. The record is clear that police in Indonesia either don’t care or are accepting bribes to look the other way. After all, who really suffers?
Tell that to those animals for sale!
