A Harbin woman was recently arrested by police for selling a tiger skin rug, which had been an heirloom, for 1 million RMB. The woman was caught red handed and the rug was seized.
The sale of precious and endangered wildlife products is illegal in China, and this includes the sale of even items that have been in the family for generations.
It is always nice to see good laws upheld!

Yeah, this is great. Even if you sell old heirlooms, it still fires up a market, because posturing peers will want to get the same bragging rights, even at the expense of endangered species. Let tigers be spared the brunt of this mass consumerist madness.
