Thai Navy officers and forestry officials display dead tigers, leopards and pangolins seized after a raid on an illegal wildlife trade on the bank of Mekong river in That Phanom district of Nakhon Phanom province, northeastern Thailand, when Thai officials seized 6 tigers, 5 leopards and 300 live pangolins bound for Laos. The traders fled the scene across the Mekong river to Laos. Conservation groups say Laos has promised to phase out tiger farms, which could help to curb the illegal trade in the endangered animals’ body parts and protect the depleted population of tigers in Asia. The groups say Laotian officials made the announcement in South Africa on Friday, Sept. 23, 2016, one day before the start of a meeting of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, or CITES. Tiger parts are used in traditional medicine in some Asian countries.
