Three Thais held for trying to sell tiger cub via Facebook

BANGKOK (The Nation/ANN) – The so-called Green cops on Tuesday arrested three Thai men for allegedly selling via a Facebook group a tiger cub smuggled from Laos.

Police Colonel Wisit Plopmuang Commander of subdivision 1 of the Natural Resources and Environmental Crime Suppression Division, or the so-called Green cops, said the three were arrested at 7pm at the carpark of Central Westgate in Nonthaburi province in a sting operation.

Wisit said his subdivision received a tip-off from the Wildlife Justice Commission (WJC) that a group of Thais had been selling wild animals via a Facebook group, so the Green cops planned the sting operation.
