Police, customs seize animal skins

A number of animal skins have been seized by Manx police and customs.

The Island's Customs and Excise team along with a Wildlife Crime Officer from the Northern Neighbourhood Policing Team made the seizure.

The skins were taken in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, which aims to ensure international trade of animals and plants doesn't threaten their survival.

The skins will be examined while further investigations take place.
