Anson Wong in U.S. Custody

NPR's John Nielsen reports on the man believed to be the mastermind behind one of the world's largest animal smuggling rings: Anson Wong. Wong was indicted in 1996 after he supplied undercover agents with hundreds of black market reptiles, including Komodo Dragons. He was arrested two years ago in Mexico, and now is in U.S. custody.
