Thailand is home to some of the world's largest wildlife trafficking operations and in the past month there have been several different discoveries of animals being smuggled at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport.
On June 2nd, Thai customs reported confiscating hundreds of live turtles and other rare animals in luggage at Bangkok's main airport.

|Baby Panther Seized at Suvarnabhumi Airport|
|Herd of Wild Animals NOT Siezed at Suvarnabumi Airport|
And speaking of the yellow shirted saps, they don’t think Parliament is a place for animals either. As I posted before, they erected signs urging voters not to “let these animals into Parliament!"
It’s amazing because it only further points out another double standard. If animals are not welcome at the airport or in the government, then why does a certain dog name Foo Foo hold the rank of Air Chief Marshal in the Thai Air Force?
It’s hard to say which book best describes the Kingdom of Orwell nowadays, “1984” or “Animal Farm.”
