Environmental officials found the skinned and salted corpses of some 740 alligators in a nature reserve in the Amazon jungle, apparently destined for lunch in regional restaurants. About eight tons of the dried reptiles were discovered in the Piagacu-Purus Reserve, the Amazonas state environmental protection agency said. Residents are permitted limited hunts for their own subsistence, but Aldenira Queiroz, an agency director, said the quantity indicated “a large-scale commercial operation,” which was illegal.
