Man tried to traffic ivory, horns from over 100 poached endangered animals, feds say

A man accused of trying to traffic millions of dollars worth of elephant ivory and rhinoceros horns, both sourced from endangered species, was sentenced to prison, federal prosecutors said.

Amara Cherif, a 57-year-old from Guinea, was a member of an international criminal enterprise based in East Africa that operated a “large-scale” smuggling operation, according to a Dec. 14 press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.
