Secret Animal Trafficking Warehouse Busted in Ayudhya
(BANGKOK, October 22, 2010) – Acting on tip offs provided by FREELAND Foundation and their own follow up investigation, Thai Police raided a secret illegal wildlife warehouse today in central, flooded Thailand, where they discovered thousands of reptiles, while arresting the owner.  The raid took place in Ayudhya at 1pm by the Nature Crime Police Division of the Royal Thai Police, led by Police Colonel Kiattipong Khawsamang.  The so-called “black market warehouse” has been facilitating the flow of at least 1.2 metric tons of wildlife out of Thailand to consumer countries every week.  More: www.freeland.org
