In the Primorsky Territory, police stopped an attempt to sell skins of the Far Eastern leopard. Environmental damage due to the killing of the Red Book animal exceeded one million rubles.

The owner of the skin - the 53-year-old resident of the village of Vozdvizhenka - was stopped by police in Ussuriysk. When examining his car in the trunk, they found the skin of a Far Eastern leopard. According to the press service of the regional Ministry of Internal Affairs, the man explained that he had presented this find more than 20 years ago, and now he decided to sell it.

The study confirmed that the skin belongs to an individual subspecies of the Far Eastern leopard, listed in the Red Book of Russia. Hunting for him is prohibited, and this animal died from two gunshot wounds.

A criminal case has been opened against the owner of the skins. A man faces up to three years in prison and a fine of up to one million rubles.
