Fish and Wildlife Service selling off seized goods in Denver

DENVER – A 22,000-square-foot Denver warehouse stuffed with leather boots, fur coats and other legal wildlife items seized because of paperwork or permit violations is filling up.

So the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is selling off pieces – about 300,000 of them – in an online auction, one lot at a time for the next several months.

The National Wildlife Property Repository in Denver held more than 1.5 million items at one point last year and had to stop accepting more for several months.

Any proceeds from the auction would be used to recover costs of the sale and support conservation education and wildlife.

None of the items is made from threatened or endangered species.
