Wildlife Budget Cuts

Tiger: a victim of Chinese folk remediesBad news for wildlife: Metropolitan Police budget cuts will reduce London's Wildlife Crime Unit (WCU) by half, severely hampering its fight against wildlife crime. The savings will amount to a piddling £80,000 a year. How many millions of pounds did the last outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease cost the UK?
