Canadian Geographic - - SHARING CAN GEO VIA INSTAGRAM -

THE STREET VALUE of an il­le­gal live gyr­fal­con? An es­ti­mated $360,000. The value of a kilo of heroin, the most ex­pen­sive nar­cotic by weight? About $135,050. The fol­low­ing chart com­pares the prices (in Cana­dian dol­lars) of select il­le­gal wildlife and drugs based on a re­cent re­port from the wildlife en­force­ment branch of En­vi­ron­ment Canada — more proof wildlife crime is big busi­ness.
