Protecting Foreign Molluscs.

According to Ynet, the Eilat Port Authority has seized a whole lot of terrible, terrible, illegal contrabanda. Not drugs, mind you, and not guns for Palestinian terrorists.

Seashells. Crates upon crates of illegal seashells.

Apparently, the importation of foreign molluscs is illegal under CITES .

Inspectors have commented, saying: "We don't want people ruining our beaches, but we also want to protect beaches abroad."

After this, they took the obvious action to protect the endangered foreign mollusc.

They destroyed them.

Another day of hard work for the Israeli government: protecting foreign molluscs and the environments by destroying endangered species specimens.
