Every animal trafficking bust gives cause to celebrate in our hearts knowing that innocent animals have been saved ...
Baby leopards, a bear, panthers, and monkeys were drugged and packed in suitcases for travel from Thailand to Dubai. Undercover animal trafficking agents made the bust at Bangkok's International airport and arrested the 1st class traveler who was a 36-year-old United Arab Emirates citizen.
Reported by AP: "It was a very sophisticated smuggling operation. We've never seen one like this before," Galster said. "The guy had a virtual zoo in his suitcases."

"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men." ~Alice Walker
