MILTON, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man who tried to sell a 70-pound rhinoceros head online is happy that charges against him have been dropped.

Ari Goldenberg of Milton was charged by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 2012 with selling an endangered species and falsifying records. Local media report that there is no proof he broke any laws.

Goldenberg said the black rhino head was part of a collection donated to Philips Exeter Academy in the 1930s. A woman bought it from the school and sold the rhino to him several years ago. He said he has the paperwork for it.

He put an ad to sell it on Craigslist. A buyer willing to pay $35,000 turned out to be an undercover wildlife agent, who confiscated the rhino.
