A Richmond, B.C. man makes his first court appearance today, facing charges under the Wildlife Act for attempting to smuggle bear paws through the Vancouver Airport.

Zhen Kun Chen was busted at an airport inspection station in August 2011 carrying three bear paws from two different black bears in his carry-on luggage.

“We know they were animals that were harvested in this province,” says Dave Cox, a B.C. conservation officer.

“The individual was en route to China, so it’s difficult to say exactly where he was headed with them.”

Bear paws are prized in China for their use in traditional medicine and also as a culinary delicacy that can fetch up $500 a plate.

Zhen could be sentenced with up to six months in jail and a $250,000 fine, or just the fine alone. He will appear in court again in September.

A court sketch shows murder victim Tiffany Gayle’s parents, Federick, and stepmother Elizabeth Gayle. She came to Canada to be with her family,
but there is little indication that she found a home here, not even for a moment.

Tiffany Gayle, a 15-year-old girl who moved to Brampton, Ont., from Jamaica, was found dead in June 2010, beaten and left in a bloody bathtub just 17 months after coming to Canada to live with her father and stepmother.
