Poachers to stand trial in Siem Reap

Two hunters are awaiting trial at Siem Reap provincial prison on charges of killing two banteng, an endangered species of wild cattle that live in the protected forests of neighbouring Oddar Meanchey. Provincial prosecutor Tiv Sovanthal said that he arrested Bou Hoeun, 53, and Chen Chuon, 49, on Wednesday for hunting the rare species, but another hunter, whom he said owned an AK-47, had not yet been apprehended. “They could face from five to 10 years in jail if convicted, ” Tiv Sovanthal said, adding that banteng are threatened with extinction.
