- The USA is trailing behind other countries—including Mexico and India—when it comes to animal protection laws for farmed and wild animals, a report published by non-profit World Animal Protection (WAP) has revealed: https://www.newsweek.com/united-states-m...ds-1491419


- Wild animals, including crocsand turtles, took over deserted tourist hotspots in southeast Mexico. One of the videos shows a jaguar walking a city street at night. According to local media, the jaguar was also spotted inside the complex of the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort & Spa in Tulum: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article...sorts.htmlhttps://expressdigest.com/wild-animals-t...n-resorts/https://www.newsoneplace.com/12740321911...an-animalshttps://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/news/...s-resorts/https://www.thesun.co.uk/travel/11296029...us-closed/

Videos have captured the animals in Quintana Roo, where the resorts of Cancun and Riviera Maya are located. One video, which has been watched 120,000 times on Facebook, shows a huge crocodile swimming along a canal between balconies. The people filming express their shock at the animal as he swims past without stopping for the people watching him. Another video captured a jaguar roaming the streets of Tulum. According to local media, the big cat was spotted near the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort & Spa.

It is rare for turtles to lay eggs in the area due to urbanisation and a bustling populationCredit: Newsflash/@ecologiacancun

A leatherback sea turtle was even caught laying 112 eggs on the beach in front of a luxury hotel in Cancun. Alfredo Arellano, secretary of ecology and environment of the state of Quintana Roo, said the turtle sighting was "very unusual". He explained: "On an average, we only have one leatherback turtle nesting per year in the entire state and the nesting season doesn't start until May." Alfredo added that they were endangered due to the urbanisation of the area. He said it was likely to have happened "because in the absence of people, with hotels closed, beaches empty, streets without cars, wildlife naturally returns to those areas".

Black bears, Brown bears and Rhinos are facing an increased threat because bear bile and rhino horn are components used in making Chinese Traditional medicine prescribed to treat coronavirus. Not good news as last year WHO gave approval to all of TCM and as pointed by @Rishi in post #347, trade in animal parts for traditional medicine is exempted by the Chinese govt.

I thought that the animal trade would suffer because COVD-19 came from a wet market, leading to unprecedented restrictions in China, but it seems that I was only partly right.

@BorneanTiger, it will suffer to a large extent. You see majority of animal trade in wet markets is for exotic meat which is consumed like pangolins, pythons, bats, etc. These animals have no place in traditional medicine. The ones that are used will have an increased pressure especially rhinos and bears as their parts are used in coronavirus treatment.
