Wildlife for sale at Malaysia zoos

Private zoos flouting laws banning trade in endangered species.

    Zoos are supposed to be about conservation and helping animals.

    But wildlife experts say some zoos, particularly those that are privately funded, all too often engage in the illegal wildlife trade.

    At one zoo in southern Malaysia, Al Jazeera was offered several animals for sale including leopard cats, which are protected by international conventions banning their trade.

    Al Jazeera's Laura Kyle reports.
