If what the evidence points to is true (i.e. more killing and eating wild animals by senior members of society) it really makes one wonder what motivates them.

BIG kudos to the DNP staff. Let's hope this one does not take as long to process as the other case.

Some interesting twists in the tale each morning when I look at the news. If the latest from the police briefing is correct - I would suspect that an awful lot more has been poached by the "caretakers and friends" over the years.

"The Kanchanaburi provincial court on Wednesday found Tata [Ed: the confessed shooter] guilty of the charges and sentenced him to 7 years and two months in jail.  However, the court later commuted his jail sentence to 3 years and and a fine of 2,000 baht because he confessed to the charges. The jail sentence was not suspended. 

The court sentenced Ms Sriwichit, Mr Thasdanai and Mr Prasan to 3 months and 15 days in jail and a fine of 3,000 baht each; Mr Jirachai, 15 days in jail and a fine of 2,750 baht; and  Ms Arun and Mr  Somkiart, 15 days in jail and a fine of 750 baht each. However, their jail terms were suspended for two years. 

The court ordered the seven defendants to pay 561,350 baht in compensation to the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation. 

The court has set April 22 to deliver its ruling on the remaining defendants, who denied the charges. "
