HUNDREDS of rhino and tiger parts and medicines have been seized in the past six months as part of a crackdown on trade in endangered species. From Thursday, possession of medicines containing tiger ingredients will be allowed only with a special permit. Breaches could result in a maximum $50,000 fine and six months in jail.
