PHUKET: Rescue workers were called to a residential area by Loch Palm Golf Club in Kathu on Thursday (Aug 22) to trap and remove three Indian monitor lizards.

 

Kusoldham Phuket Foundation workers carefully caught the monitor lizards, known for their lockjaw bite and acidic saliva, from houses and gardens in the area and transported them to the Khao Phra Thaeo Wildlife Sanctuary.

 

The trio were subsequently released into the jungle near Bang Pae Waterfall in the Khao Pra Thaew Non-Hunting area in Thalang, confirmed Pongchart Chuahom, the sanctuary’s director.

Were they there on tourist visas - did immigration get involved afterwards? Had they filled in their TM30s?
