News stories about big busts rarely tell you how the cops find out. How did they find out about the rotten cargo? Anyway, well done Cambodian police. They seem to be a roll these days.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

A lot of pet food down the drain there , I always pick one roast little bird roadsoad / street side actually all along selling ducks ( i can tell ) / but further down they sell little birds , the cats here love them .
Not much to them for .75¢ apiece but it’s worth it for having the cats around keeping me company .

1 000 Tons! WOW! That's 1 000 000 Kilo! All in one truck! Is it Cambodian figures? 100 or 1 000 kilo?

I saw the report elsewhere and it said something like 1250 kg, so a bit over a ton. I've seen TV reports where people smuggle rotten meat from Thailand in the panels on their doors etc, it was disgusting. It gets processed via bleaching and other processes into various products such as those hot dogs they sell on street stalls. Loads of Borax etc too. :(

That's why I never eat any street food. I mean, what is it with these noodles and 'pork balls'?

Or the beef stew that looks like some boiled hooker's flaps, garnished with some river weeds

I am famous for going out with the guys and never eating - just drinking.

I always make the excuse I have just eaten - or my wife has cooked for when I get home or the English don't mix beer and food.

But then again, what about the famous 'horse-meat' scandal in the UK.

At least they busted this one - good work.

I'd pity the poor sod who gets handed a digging hoe, and is then ordered to dig a hole big enough to bury 100 Tons of pork.
