Builder arrested after seen in video butchering barking deer

A local builder has been arrested and charged after been seen in a video clip with other men butchering the carcass of a barking deer in preparation for cooking it, in Bang Pa-in district.

On Wednesday, officials from the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservaton’s Phaya Suea task force searched a house in tambon Sam Ruean. They found barking deer hair and butchering knives in the house grounds. House owner Panya Wirakornkun, 37, a local builder, was detained for illegal possession of the carcass of a protected species in violation of the Wildlife Preservation and Protection Act 1992. He was taken to Sinthiwathanee police station.

Police said Mr Panya confessed he bought a dead barking deer from a hunter in Saraburi province for 8,400 baht and took it to his home in Ayutthaya. There, employees helped him butcher it and prepare a meal with the meat. One of the workers had videotaped the butchering and later uploaded the clip to YouTube. He claimed he did not know the barking deer was a protected animal. He was released on bail. The clip has since been removed from YouTube.
