KOH SAMUI — Island police are on the lookout for a repeat wildlife offender who farms tourists for money by charging them for photos with a gibbon.

Yeah, yeah, I am sure the cops have absolutely noooooooooo idea who this guy is.

 

(but somebody who looks like him carrying a weird looking thing he calls a 'big Pekingese' comes around every Thursday and spots the sergeant a few grand)

This guy looks familiar. Seen him on Lamai too with Gibbon baby and when approached to complain about the illegality of this, one is met with not so thinly veiled threats.

Seen the same activity in other tourist spots such as Ao Nang, and feel quite sad for the poor victims.

Did you approach him to complain about the illegality of this?
