Ivory sold on eBay ten years after ‘total ban’

Thousands of ivory items have been sold on eBay since the company banned the sale of ivory in 2009.

Sellers have since used pseudonyms, usually “bovine bone” to list and sell ivory ornaments, jewelry, and other objects.

In an investigation, BBC News bought three items listed as ‘bovine bone’ by three UK-based sellers and had them tested.

Two of the three items have been confirmed to be made from elephant ivory.
