1000 leopard claws seized in India

1000 leopard claws seized in IndiaForest officials in Kerala state have seized 1,000 leopard claws from Guruvayur. It is thought that the claws originated from Sudan but mystery still surrounds the source of the claws. This single seizure represents the deaths of at least 55 of the big cats.

Some senior officers from the Kerala Forest and Wildlife Department have suggested that at least some of the leopard claws are not genuine and the haul is made up of ‘fake claws’. Other officials believe that the claws may originate from India rather than Sudan and represents a long campaign of leopard poaching in the country.
