Wildlife Rescued in Trinidad and Tobago

Three corrupt police officers in Trinidad and Tobago robbed a couple of Venezuelan wildlife smugglers and were subsequently arrested themselves. Over 1,000 animals were rescued, including 500 bull finches and 300 picoplats, The rescued wildlife also included monkeys, parrots, macaws and other species from Venezuela.

There was also over 400 lbs of "wild meat" (I don't want to know what that could be!)
