Russian border control officials in the Far East have discovered almost half a ton of bear paws and Siberian musk deer organs being smuggled to China.

BLAGOVESHCHENSK, November 6 (RIA Novosti) – Russian border control officials in the Far East have discovered almost half a ton of bear paws and Siberian musk deer organs being smuggled to China.

Federal Security Service officers seized over 450 kilograms of the packed bear parts and a gland and gall bladder from an endangered Siberian musk deer at a garage in the border city of Blagoveshchensk.

The bear paws came from around a hundred animals, officials said.

“[The packages] were being prepared to be sent to China,” the border control service said in a statement.

Bear paws are often smuggled from Russia to many Asian countries, where they are considered a delicacy and are also used in traditional medicine.
