Chinese Woman Arrested In Tanzania For Smuggling Ivory

Yes, it is true; a Chinese woman was arrested and charged for smuggling an average of 706 elephant husks; which is valued at $2.5 million dollars.

The guilty person is a 66-year-old woman; whose name is Yang Feng Glan; she also goes by the nickname, "The Queen of Ivory."

This elderly Chinese woman is no newcomer to the illegal business of supplying customers with ivory; she has been doing that sort of thing for ten years.

Yang Feng Glan owned many businesses; including a large restaurant in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania's largest city) and she was also serving as the secretary general of the Tanzania-China Africa Business Council.

Reliable sources have stated that the 66-year-old Chinese woman was under surveillance by an elite police task force back in September 28th, 2015.

It was also said that when Yang Feng Glan found out that the police were on to her, she escaped briefly by car and was apprehended.

On Thursday, she made an appearance before the Tanzanian High Court and was denied bail.

Andrea Costa, a spokesman for the Elephant Action League (a nonprofit group that battles the crime against wildlife) had this to say:

"The elephant species is in the hands of the Chinese President. Once the President decides to close down the legal market of ivory and elephant in China, the poaching of the elephants will end."

Back in September of this year, U.S President Barack Obama and the Chinese President Xi Jinping made history by announcing to the world, that China and the United States would protect elephants from the poaching crisis with nearly complete bans on the imports and the exports of ivory.

Let us all hope that elephant poaching becomes a thing of the past.

Also, may all illegal ivory smugglers know that once they are caught in the act, they would be dealt with severely by the law.

American Woman Arrested For Sitting On Sea Turtle

When I thought that I have heard the weirdest things that ever took place on the planet, the electronic media decided to highlight an interesting piece of news — news about a woman who was arrested for riding a sea turtle.

Stephanie Marie Moore, a 20-year-old woman from Melbourne, Florida, U.S.A., was arrested early Saturday morning by the Melbourne Police Department; her crime: riding the back of a sea turtle.

Apparently, Stephanie Marie Moore was one of two females that were photographed back in July riding a sea turtle; that picture made its way on social media; which prompted numerous complaints to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, which conducted the criminal investigation.

Guess what?

Police arrested her when they responded to a disturbance call at approximately 5:00 AM in the 600 Block of Espanola Way.

During the investigation, the police found out about Moore's active warrant; the one that was in reference to her failing to comply with a FWC rule.

She was arrested and sent to the Brevard County Jail; her bond was set at $2,000.

Let this be a lesson to all those people who may choose to fathom something stupid, like sitting on the back of a pregnant sea turtle and uploading the proof (an incriminating picture of themselves in the act) on their social media account.

Vegans and animal rights activists are probably celebrating and thinking to themselves: "There is really justice in this world!"
