AUCTIONEER GETS YEAR IN U.S. PRISON FOR IVORY AND RHINO HORN SMUGGLING 06/27/2016

An executive with a Beverly Hills gallery and auction house was sentenced on June 22 to one year and one day in prison after admitting that he conspired to smuggle at least $1 million in animal products that included rhino horn and elephant ivory. Joseph Chait, 38, a senior auction administrator for his family's business, I.M. Chait Gallery/Auctioneers, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Paul Oetken in Manhattan after pleading guilty in March to conspiring to smuggle wildlife products. Prosecutors said that Chait falsified customs forms by stating ivory and rhino horn were made of bone, wood or plastic. After a rhino carving sold at auction for $230,000, Chait made false documents putting the value at $108.75, and saying the object was made of plastic, prosecutors said. Most species of rhinoceros are extinct or on the brink of extinction as a result, and elephants are under threat in many countries.

Activism

Animals deserve rights, regardless of how they taste or how convenient it is to experiment on them. Like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have an interest in leading their own lives. They are not ours to use for food, clothing, experimentation, or entertainment.

As an activist, you can educate people in your community and positively affect their attitudes and lifestyles. You just need the desire to generate positive change and to believe that your voice and actions matter...
