Illegal donkey-skin trade thriving on social networks, report reveals

The illegal sale of donkey skins is thriving in online marketplaces, with traders openly flouting local laws, and social media multinationals such as Facebook doing little to prevent the illegal trade, according to a new investigation.

About 4.8 million animals are killed each year, largely driven by Chinese demand for traditional medicine.
