Wild life advocates are pushing legislation to end sale of ivory

In Massachusetts, wildlife advocates are pushing legislation on Beacon Hills to end the sale of ivory and rhino horns. This bill will cut down the sale of ivory and rhino horn items with limited exemptions attached to musical instruments or an antique.

This incident came after a Chinese national was arraigned in federal court, he was charged for illegally smuggling $700,000 worth of goods made from banned rhino horns and ivory and Coral. He pleaded not guilty. The case alleges that Chen has bought the artifacts at auction houses and which repackaged and falsely labeled them.

He was involved with an unidentified Chinese national to pick up the goods and mail some of them to a shipping business in Concord, Massachusetts.
