CA MAU — Several rare wild animals have recently been discovered in U Minh Ha Forest in the southernmost province of Ca Mau, according to the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.
The animals included monkeys, wild boars, weasels, pythons and varans. Wild boars have not been seen in the forest for dozens of years. The flock of wild boars may include hundreds of animals, local forest wardens said.
The Ca Mau People’s Committee banned wild animal hunting, transport and trading in 2000. Since 2010, the province has discovered nearly 80 cases of illegal wild animal trading.
