Hi Paul,

Did you see the story recently about the crate of rare monkeys that
arrived in Holland from China without proper documentation? No
Dutch institutions wanted them and the Chinese wouldn't take them
back so they were put, still alive, into a mincer for dog food.
Another victory for the conservationists? With success stories like
these to their credit, conservationist is rapidly becoming a
deprecated profession like tax inspector, used car salesman etc.
