Three pig-tailed macaques rescued

On November 5, the ENV Wildlife Crime hotline received a report about two macaques being kept at residence and another macaque beingkept at a cafe in Dong Nai province. A Wildlife Crime officer contacted the Dong Nai FPD, and after the owners were made aware of relevant wildlife protection laws, they voluntarily transferred the pig-tailed macaques (Macaca leonine) to the FPD on November 17 to be later released into the wild. On the same occasion, officers from the FPD spoke to residents of Cam My district about wildlife protection laws, resulting in one Burmese python (Python molurus) and oneClouded monitor (Varanus bengalensis) being voluntarily placed at the Dong Nai Culture and Nature Reserve.
