Authorities in Kandal province arrested a 57- year-old man yesterday as he was attempting to smuggle four wild piglets into Vietnam from Kien Svay district.
Siv Savang had been going across the border to try to sell the pig-lets when he was stopped, police said.
Kien Svay district police chief Pa Sa Eat said yesterday officials had co-operated with the forestry administration to stop the car.
“We were asked for help with the forestry administrative officials to arrest the driver and the four wild pigs,” he said.
An official with the forestry administration who declined to be named said Siv Savang would be sent to court this week, and the four little pigs were on their way to the Tamao zoo.
