December 12, 2017 – Chhay Areng Patrol Station
In the morning, the head ranger Robod Mitya reported an injured Civet that urgently needs care after being snared. Unfortunately the animal died on the ranger’s hands on the way to Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center. Grief for such an animal might be considered one of the purest experiences of compassion, based only on the sense that an innocent life has ended.
Same day, the rangers from Chhay Areng Patrol Station dismantle 35 snares, 9 soft turtle traps from the forest floor.
