SALT LAKE CITY -- Auctioneers are getting ready to sell off thousands of dollars worth of property once owned by convicted swindler Travis Wright.

The items include the mounts from animals Wright shot on safari around the world. Elephant tusks, a stuffed hyena and wildebeest, and a even a full-mounted African lion are all up for sale.

Wright's high-end gun collection includes an $80,000 rifle. Cars, motorcycles and furniture are also hitting the auction block.

Everything will be sold this Thursday and Saturday, April 22 and April 24, at the Utah State Fairpark.
