Live Blackbuck found on sale in Delhi

A live sub-adult blackbuck was seized in an upmarket Delhi area by the Delhi police, acting on a tipoff. Two persons who were planning to sell the animal were apprehended. Considering the location of the seizure, it is speculated that the animal may have been brought there to service upscale clients who want to serve exotic meat in their social gatherings. The arrested persons said that they had obtained the blackbuck from Meerut. In August 2008, an undercover operation assisted by the Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) exposed the fact that Meerut was being an online trade market for Wildlife.
