Thirteen tiger cubs, 6 great hornbills seized in Thailand

Wildlife officials seized two tiger cubs, six great hornbills and two wreathed hornbills from a house in Non Sung district of the north-eastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima on Friday.

A 67-year old man, identified only as Kiang, who was found in the house with another man, claimed he owned the eight protected animals. He also claimed he had bought the tiger cubs, at 150,000 baht each, from a wildlife trader in Bangkok and paid 6,000 baht for the great hornbills and 8,000 baht each for the wreathed hornbills to the same trader.
