Two non-commissioned army officers, based in Thailand’s northern province of Chiang Mai, have separately defended the killing of a leopard cat and a Chinese rat snake, both protected species.

 

The two officers Sgt. Charoensak Pongsrisuk, based at an army camp in Mae Rim district, and an unidentified sergeant major, based at another army camp in Chiang Dao district, are being separately held in military custody pending investigations.

 

Charoensak was depicted on the webpage of Watchdog Thailand, the website of a group of conservationists, holding a dead leopard cat which he allegedly killed in the compound of the camp adjoining the Doi Suthep-Pui national park. He was temporarily suspended from duty and his family was ordered to move out of the barracks within seven days.
