In what prosecutors called one of the most “egregious examples” in the U.S. “of an individual flouting the laws against ivory trafficking,” nearly 500 pieces of ivory and ivory carvings smuggled into the U.S. in violation of the African Elephant Conservation Act 2;were seized from art dealer Victor Gordon and several of his customers. All of the ivory was subsequently forfeited to the U.S. government.
