Chaiwat Limlikitaksorn, director of the Ubon Ratchathani’s National Parks, said on Sunday that the missing cubs will most likely be smuggled back into Thailand to be sold to restaurants catering for exotic tastes.

Someone needs to join in with the times. No-one eats bear paws or tiger doo-dahs any more. Bit like bat soup, media frenzy.

Really?

Perhaps the Chinese are happier just painfully extracting bile from bears these days. Is that what you regarding as joint in with the times?

You should get out more @Poolie and take a closer look at your beloved China. Maybe you can’t at the moment, but things are opening up. Don’t forget your face mask though.

You are grossly misinformed.

Tiger farms all over Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and China provide body parts for human consumption.

 

Thai billionaire Premchai Karnasuta was jailed for cooking rare black leopard in 2021.

 

I can't really understand why you think this doesn't happen - just look at te posts above,

At least I'm somewhat informed and not by rumours from media.

My wife is a pharmacist lecturer here in China, and she informs me very firmly that those things belong in a former era.

I find it almost unbelievable that someone who teaches pharmacy is so un-informed of the effects of TCM on wildlife and the illegal trade that supplies it.

Including Bear Pile extraction? Nonsense. Total and utter garbage. You both need to get a double VPN and start checking out what the rest of the entire world knows. Utterly incredulous.

I can take his odd childish one liners, but lately he’s been overstepping the mark far too often. I need to check the forum rules about spreading misinformation. No matter what the situation is, gross misinformation is unacceptable and no excuse.

this article voices concerns about a further 30Tigers that may be eaten.

 

"Chaiwat Limlikit-aksorn, director of the National Park Conservation Area Administration Office 9 in Ubon Ratchathani, said on Sunday that his office and its Laos counterpart were working to track down the new shipment of cubs.

He reckons the cubs will be sneaked back into Thailand to be sold to illegal eateries providing exotic meat."
