A frozen and dissected carcass of a 668lb tiger has been found by police in the back of a truck in Vietnam.
The tiger, which was already cut into five parts, was found in the province of Bac Kan on Thursday following a tip-off that the truck, which was parked at a hotel, was smuggling illegal goods.
The tiger parts were contained in five separate sacks and were wrapped in blankets and hidden inside the vehicle. It is believed the tiger's bones were to be boiled and made into a traditional medicine.
Officers also found two sacks containing 116lb of animal bones, 6ln of animal bone glue, and 6lb of turtle shells in the truck.
