What goes on in Thailand is unconscionable. No less than a global boycott needs to take place against this hell for animals. Thanks for sharing this post. If only this were the case for all of the other animals suffering in this country where animal welfare law appears to be non-existent.

this is not good news. the dnp are the ones responsible for raiding the completely legitimate sanctuary called wildlife friends foundation thailand. they ripped those animals away from their home and transported them in tiny, rusted cages to places unknown. i suspect the dnp took these animals in order to sell them themselves.

WELL, I SURE AM CONFUSED !!!
I READ THE WHOLE STORY & FOUND A COMMENT, FROM A PERSON WHO AGREES,
# 100 % WITH " CATHERINE TURLEY ". !!!!!

SO , WHAT IS THE RIGHT STORY, I WONDER ????

MAYB THAILAND IS JUS AS FULL OF CORRUPTION AS INDONESIA ,
& UNTIL GOVERNMENTS ARE CHANGED FOR THE BETTER, THE
ANIMALS WILL CONTINUE TO SUFFER !!!!!

A pity they raided the Sanctuary as well and caused untold upset. I am very confused by the whole thing.
