AN Almeria woman’s attempts to sell items made from animal skin and ivory online landed her in legal trouble.

An Almeria court has imposed a fine of €4 a day for eight months for breaking wildlife trade laws. The court also banned her from hunting or fishing for two years and ordered her to pay the legal costs of the case.

According to reports the woman advertised for buyers for a second-hand crocodile skin suitcase and an elephant ivory cross on a number of internet portals without the requisite Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora certificates.
