An endangered red-shanked douc was handed over to authorities by a man in the north central province of Ha Tinh, who had bought it from its captor.


The Vu Quang National Park on Wednesday said it received the douc from forest protection services of Ky Anh Town.


A few days prior, Nguyen Hong Dinh, a local from Ky Anh, saw a person catching a douc during a trip to the nearby Quang Binh Province. Aware of its endangered status, Dinh bought the animal, took care of it and eventually handed it to authorities.
