WRRT Confiscates 1,054 Python Gallbladders

Recently, Wildlife Alliance’s Wildlife Rapid Rescue Team raided a house based on information provided by an informant, and found a staggering amount of python gallbladders (1,054) and 158 kilograms of python fat.

The trader was operating a wedding equipment hire business on the ground floor as a front for the python processing factory upstairs. This location had previously been targeted by the team, however no wildlife was found at the time. After extensive surveillance, the team identified the best time to conduct the raid resulting in Thursday’s successful operation.

The trader is being sent to the Kandal provincial court and is charged based on Article 96 of the Forestry Law for the amount of $12,500 USD. Help the WRRT in their efforts to end illegal wildlife trafficking by making a donation today!
