Binh Dinh: Two grey langur rescued
On Apr 25, two grey-shanked douc langur (Pygathrix nemaeus cinerea), kept at a local residence, were transferred to Cuc Phuong Nature Park (NP) by Binh Dinh FPD. After receiving the information from the public via the wildlife protection hotline, Binh Dinh FPD came and raised awareness to persuade the owner to voluntarily transfer the langurs. The owner said that he had bought the animals from a hunter and kept them as pets. According to a Cuc Phuong NP officer, the mother langur weighed about 8kg and was in a weak condition due to diarrhea. The young langur weighed about 660 grams and was in good health.
Grey-shanked douc langur belongs to group IB of Decree 32/ND-CP - the group of rare wild animals forbidden to be exploited and used for commercial purposes.
