This stack of  67 boxes from the Dominican Republic. This shipment sat in the hanger, in Boston Mass, from March 7, 2000 till March 16, 2000, when it was reported to US Fish and Wildlife.
The importer was fined a whopping $450 for the death of over 1350 animals.

This is one of the boxes opened.

Take note to how tightly they were packed and to the
plastic netting they were packed in.

These frogs died due to the lacerations suffered from the netting.

In this photo you can see the lacerations in this animals
skin, between its legs.
