A Prachuap Khiri Khan resident, whose favourite pastime was catching monitor lizards and going on motorbike rides with them tied to the passenger seat, was arrested on Friday for animal abuse charges.

 

Officials from Kui Buri National Park and a team of special-unit officers showed up at the man’s house after he posted photographs of his antics on Facebook.

 

The suspect, who goes by the name Chaowalit, confessed that he has been doing this for four months now and often posted photographs on a Facebook page run by wildlife hunters.

 

He was charged with catching or harming protected wildlife and violating Articles 12 and 89 of the Wild Animal Reservation and Protection Act.

 

The offender was taken to Ban Yang Police Station for legal action and could face up to 10 years in prison and/or a fine of up to Bt1 million.

Bad man. I hold his neighbors and family responsible too. They saw him do this over 4 months  and did not report him.

Yes, I know not much will happen, but if they can get  this bad man to stop, it will be better than nothing.

Let's not say that, let's say what actually happened, eh?

 

Premchai got a 2 year 4 month prison sentence and a multi-million baht fine for the panther episode.

The Chinese tourist got a six-month suspended sentence, deportation and a B15,000 fine.  

 

How much was the Thai with the water monitor pillion-rider fined/jailed for?

You mean Premchai is still in jail I very much doubt it knowing the system here ! but as a noone and capturing monitors he could face up to 10 years in prison and/or a fine of up to Bt1 million and don't get caught collecting mushrooms in a National Park you end up in the big house also Oh by the way selling dead monitors in the market must be quite ok let's say they were roadkill and same goes for bush meat dam vehicles !
