Just when Thailand was beginning to celebrate the emerging recovery of its wild tiger population comes devastating news. 

 

Hunters are shooting the beasts and putting them on the barbie.

 

National Park rangers in Kanchanaburi seized two Bengal tiger pelts and weapons at a campsite near the border with Myanmar in Thong Pha Phum district.

 

Five suspects managed to flee - leaving fresh tiger meat roasting on the BBQ.

 

The tigers had been lured with the carcase of a dead cow, reported Manager. The hunters lay in wait with guns.

 

The five managed to escape when dogs barked and alerted them to their impending arrest. 

 

Niphon Jamnongsirisak, director of Protected Area 3, confirmed the shocking case as measures against poachers were taking place. 

 

The pelts of the tigers were hanging up to dry and were retrieved along with dozens of other items.

 

Thailand's wild tiger population has been on the increase. In a case earlier in the week one was found in a mango orchard after killing a dog. 

 

Ital Thai chief and billionaire Premchai Karnasuta now languishes in jail for a couple of years after being convicted of shooting a panther and cooking it up.

 

Investigations in the latest case continue including the provenance of one of the guns found at the scene believed to belong to a defence volunteer.

Cattlemen who killed tigers at national park surrender, say they killed their cows

Four cattle farmers, wanted by the police for allegedly killing two tigers in Thong Pha Phum national park in Thailand’s western province of Kanchanaburi, have explained that they shot the two big cats because they had killed several cows.

 

The four men, who claimed to be cattlemen, gave themselves up to police and national park officials at a pre-arranged location in Pilok sub-district. They were taken to Thong Pha Phum district police station for questioning.

 

The four suspects claimed that they had borrowed a shotgun from a defence volunteer and had their own muzzle-loading guns and a small calibre rifle to hunt tigers in the national park. They also took cattle carcasses, to be used as bait to lure the tigers into the open.

Ok.  So I was a going to say lighten up everyone - just some guys trying to protect their livelihood….

Then discussed this with wife - she says ‘ same people who shot black tiger - can do anything because have a lot of money’.  

Based on this ,  I agree -  throw the book at these low lifes!!

Any animal should be adequately protected in a National Park.

A cattle ban around the perimeter of all national parks; probably 30 kilometers would  be enough. Hogs, chickens, and dogs too.

Perhaps Thailand officials need to explain to the IQ-impaired segment of Thai society exactly what the purpose of national parks are and their role in protecting endangered species - which cows are not.

Couldn't come to this obvious conclusion on your own? Took your wife to convince you about the seriousness of an endangered species, facing possible extinction, being illegally killed? No matter how much money they have either. Still the same heinous crime and the punishment should be severe.

This doesn't quite add up, Bengal tigers are not found in this area, it's the Indochinese tiger and they are so rare that even capturing them on photo traps deep in the jungle is an achievement. Googling tells me there's widespread illegal cattle grazing in the area and where there's cattle grazing there is a noticeable absence of all wildlife, including tigers and prey.

Right! But after killing them for killing their cows let’s skin the tigers and sell their fur for an exorbitant amount of money, too, while we’re at it, shall we? 
 

i don’t believe a single word! It was all about selling the fur to begin with!

The thai airforce better invest in small airplanes or helicopters with night vision equipment rather than buying useless fighter jets to defend a non-existing thread.

They could find those poachers plus illegal immigrants and drug smugglers.

no need they have smart cars
