Livestock and customs officials seized about 1.5 tonnes of pig carcasses yesterday (Sunday), which had been smuggled into Thailand’s eastern border province of Sa Kaeo from Cambodia.

 

The driver of the pickup truck containing the pork was arrested after a brief chase. He allegedly admitted that the carcasses were being delivered to a customer.

 

A livestock official said that, normally, Thai businessmen will place an order for pig carcasses with their Cambodian counterparts, who then arrange for the meat to be sent to a rendezvous near the Thai border, opposite Sa Kaew Province.

I didn't realize that there was that much money to be made smuggling pork?

Seems to be big business for some reason?

It seems that when the word "smuggled" is used, there is always money to be made, no matter the commodity in question.
