Suspects in killing of protected serow surrender to park officers

Father and son hunters surrendered to authorities on Wednesday, after a provincial court issued arrest warrants over the killing of a protected serow in Phetchaburi’s Kaeng Krachan National Park on November 17.

 

National park’s chief Mana Permpoon said he and Kaeng Krachan district chief Suthee Laosubinprasert led officials to collect Saeha Jeebong, 53, and son Noppadol Jeebong, 24, from Ban Pong Leuk in the morning to hand them over to Kaeng Krajan police.

 

They will be charged for various alleged offences, including illegal hunting, firing a gun in a national park without permission, possessing a wildlife carcass, and illegally possessing a gun and ammunition.

 

Thailand has two threatened species of the goat-antelope serow – the Sumatran serow (Capricornis sumatraensis) and the Mainland serow (Capricornis milneedwardsii).

 

A 30-strong Army-police search of Ban Pong Leuk in Tambon Huai Mae Priang was conducted on Tuesday. The village, lying within the park, was seven kilometres from where the butchered serow carcass, two guns and 19 bullets were found in the Huai Pha Noi area of the park on November 17.

 

At the time, park patrol officials heard several gunshots coming from the direction of Huai Pha Noi, but the hunters’ dogs barked as officials arrived at the scene enabling the two hunters to narrowly escape.

 

The Tuesday search at the suspects' home found the same type of bullets as those found at the scene but the suspects again managed to flee.

Justice will be swift for those who are neither CEOs of Thai companies or wealthy (or both). 
These boys will be in jail before you can say, "Protected Serow" 10 times really fast!

Interesting isn't it. These poor guys get caught and no one cares about the awful thing they did. Where are the hundreds of pages of condemnation? Not one person cares they are killing these wonderful protected creatures. Better switch to talking about the rich guy instead. By the way, his request to delay trial was denied.
