66 hog deer released into the wild was created by Robby L
Gen Surasak Karnjanarat, the Natural Resources and Environment minister, on Monday released 66 hog deers, which are protected animals, into the Dong Yai Reserve in Tambon Lam Nang Rong in Non Din Daeng district of Buri Ram province.

The release of the wild animals is a programme carried out by the National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department, to conserve and rehabilitate wildlife and create the balance for natural resources, environment and ecosystem.

The programme is also in the honour of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, His Majesty the Queen, and to celebrate the 65th birthday of King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun.

Under the programme, about 25,000 wild animals of 48 types have been released into the wild.

Hog deer is a protected wild animal under the Wildlife Protection and Conservation Act of 1960. Breeding of hog deers has been carried out by the National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation. Since 1983, the department has so far released 629 into the country’s game reserves.

Dong Yai Game Reserve would appear to be north of Ta Phraya NP although it is not shown on on Google maps. This would make it part of the Thap lan, Pang Sida, Khao Yai complex

RIP 2018 - Robby will always be remembered for his sharing of his trips and knowledge. Missed by all.

Dong Yai is a a Wildlife Sanctuary and part of the Dong Phayayen-Khao Yai Forest Complex. I am not sure why it has sanctuary status. You can access it through a left turn before Nong Din Deang (if you are heading past Ta Phraya up towards Buriram). Have not been for about 5 or 6 years, access used to be open as theres a dam in it. Not sure about these days. Access was a dirt road through the rubber plantations, the HQ area was nice and the dam not far from there.
