Adjust font size:

A man from Guizhou Province was arrested recently in neighboring Yunnan Province after taking a bear's paw to give his parents as a rare and nutritious delicacy.

The man, surnamed Huo, had a taste for wild animals and one day bought a bear's paw in Jinghong, Yunnan province, as a gift for his mom and dad.

When he took a train at the province's Qujing railway station to his hometown in Anshun, Guizhou Province, police pounced.

Besides the bear's paw, they also found anteater's scales, a cobra and a leopard leg.

Huo will be prosecuted for smuggling precious and endangered wildlife products.
