Out of the frying pan and into the lake for turtles

A restaurant in Phnom Penh’s Prampi Makara district will likely be rethinking its menu after military police in cooperation with the NGO Wildlife Alliance found 190 kilograms of live protected turtles there on Monday.

Officials say the restaurant had been operating for several years, its endangered delicacies flying under the radar of ministry inspections.

While it’s sadly too late for the hundreds of turtles already fed to customers, authorities said the rescued reptiles will be released into a natural lake.
