Vietnamese man arrested; wildlife meat, parts found by Perhilitan


KLUANG: A 35-year-old Vietnamese man was arrested by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (Perhilitan) here for stocking exotic animal body parts in his house in Simpang Renggam.

Johor Perhilitan director Salman Saaban said four enforcement officers from the department raided the house at about 1.45pm on Wednesday (Nov 4) after receiving a tip-off.

"Among items we seized from the premises were frozen wild boar meat and tusks, porcupine thorns and snake and monitor lizard skins," he said in a statement.

The man works in a fruit orchard in the area, he said.

He added that a police report has been made and the items had been brought to the Kluang district Perhilitan office.

"We believe that the suspect kept the items for his own personal use and also to sell," Salman said, adding that Perhilitan officers would request a remand order against the suspect for further investigation on Thursday (Nov 5).
