Antiques Dealer Caught in Rhino Horn Sting

An antiques dealer has admitted interfering with an investigation into the illegal sale of rhino horns, the Manhattan U.S. Attorney's Office said Wednesday (Aug. 1), describing how the dealer used a pair of fake horns to try to double-cross investigators at one point.   

David Hausman pretended to aid the probe into the illegal sale of a black rhinoceros' head and instead tried to buy the head for himself, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara said in a statement.

In a plea deal, Hausman, 67, admitted in federal court on Wednesday (Aug. 1) to obstruction of justice and falsification of records in relation to the sale of the head of another black rhino.
