Facebook Groups: Malaysia’s new wildlife trade marketplace

by

Hugh Paxton’s Blog was out of Thailand (and out of WiFi range) when this arrived from Richard. I’ve only just found it. A disturbing development. And a bemusing one. I don’t condone, but can understand, a desire to own exotic species such as birds or a gibbon, maybe even a tortoise. But who on earth would want a binturong? And risk a prison term as well as spend a lot of money to obtain one?
