Chainsaws, tents found at Prey Lang sanctuary

The Prey Lang Community Network (PLCN) representative in Kampong Thom province, Sok Plok told The Post that his team had found and seized a number of chainsaws and tents left behind by loggers in the forest.

Plok had patrolled the forest with wildlife sanctuary officials and local police forces from October 20-22.

The group also found seven newly logged trees near the tents. One had been planed into nine planks while three other trees had already been cut into smaller logs.

“The evidence has been seized and handed over to sanctuary officials for further investigation and action,” Plok said.
