Cops investigate leopard skull for sale on eBay

The leopard skull seized by police

Police have raided a home in south London after illegal animal parts were found for sale on eBay - including a leopard skull.

Cops found the skull, which is mounted on a plinth, on the auction website, then tracked down the seller to a house in Kingston. They raided the address on Thursday.

MPS Kingston tweeted: "Typical day for the MPSKingston wildlife crime officer - just executed a search warrant and seized a leopard skull."

The trading on parts of endangered species is illegal. The Metropolitan Police say the investigation is ongoing and no one has been arrested.
