UAE 'winning' war on wild pet trade

Authorities say they are succeeding against the illegal smuggling of exotic animals.

    The multi-billion-dollar illegal trade in exotic pets in the United Arab Emirates is facing a "successful" government crackdown.

    After years of battling the illicit smuggling of protected wild animals across its borders, UAE authorities now say they are winning.

    Al Jazeera's Nick Clark reports from Sharjah, where many confiscated animals are being well cared for in a wildlife park set up specifically for them.
