Specialists of the administration of Rosselkhoznadzor for Tyumen Oblast, Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug and Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug (the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance) inspected a consignment of reindeer velvet antlers – more than two tonnes before sending for export to Hong Kong. No violations were detected during the cargo inspection. The accompanying veterinary documents corresponded to the sent cargo and were issued according to the established rules, as it is reported in the administration.
Velvet antlers are reindeer growing antlers still non-ossified and cut off during growth and development of an animal. They have non-ossified tubular structure filled with blood, covered with thin velvety skin with short soft hair. Deer are the only family of mammals that annually grow and shed a massive organ – antlers. In Oriental traditional systems of healing (China, Korea) velvet antlers are widely used to preserve strength and youth.
