Cattle-rustling pair caught by traffic stop

Many expats say Cambodia’s Wild West days are over, but an unusual suspected thief in Kampong Thom’s Baray district on Monday suggests the frontier spirit may still live on.

Police carrying out traffic checks pulled over a car when they noticed some unusual passengers: two cows.

Two of the would-be cattle rustlers were detained by police, while the third managed to make an escape.

The car and cows were confiscated by police, while the suspected bovine bandits were sent to the district police station.
