Six amateur butchers get caught red-handed

Six men found themselves on the defensive in Por Sen Chey district when they were caught out for a cash cow venture that may have grazed the wrong side of the law.

Police found the men slitting the throats of three cows in an empty field Saturday night, with no permits for distributing meat.

Noting a rash of lifted livestock from nearby rural areas, the police grew suspicious, and eventually the men confessed their beef-selling business was already in its second month.

Their machetes, axes and two motorbikes were confiscated, though the whereabouts of the meat is unknown.
