They should have been imprisoned and the court should also have ordered that all their teeth be removed.
and put into inlays in a cue...
Gotta love the miniscule amount of actual facts regarding news in this several page story being inconsistent. Speaks volumes for the writers intent for the story...
in paragraph 2:
"forfeited a combined total of more than $2 million in ivory and paid a total of $55,000 to aid the Wildlife Conservation Society"
and in paragraph 11:
"he and the company surrendered about $2 million worth of ivory and paid $45,000 to the Wildlife Conservation Society"
...so how much was it anyway?
Wonder how much legal Ivory is in wear-houses all over the World that could be imported if the US Government did not require the importers to jump thru so many hoops.
I hope that was bad humor, otherwise you don't know much about cuemaking and are just trying to be sensationalist.
