Wild Hawk leader Thiradech Palasuwan led the team to search Food and Cosmetics System Co Ltd in Sukhumvit Soi 68 following a tip-off that the company held many wild animals.
The officers searched the premises run by manager Surachai Suthisarn, 33. They found two albino crab-eating macaques, one albino crow, one porcupine, two albino Asian koels, two albino mynas, five red-whiskered bulbuls and eight turtles – for which Surachai could not produce documents. The police said they charged the man for having protected wildlife without permission.
