Binh Phuoc (VNA) – Police from the southeastern province of Binh Phuoc have seized 10 civets transported from Cambodia to Vietnam for investigating the case of trafficking rare and precious wild animals.

On December 27, the police discovered four big baskets in a car that contained 10 adult civets of group IIB (threatened and rare species).

Driver Do Van Thanh, residing in Binh Phuoc’s Bu Dop district, told competent forces that he bought these civets from Cambodia and then sought to transport them to Binh Phuoc for sale.

He was caught in Bu Gia Map district while transporting the civets.

Local police made a record to seize all the civets and the car for further investigation./.

The worlds most expensive coffee is Civet coffee also know as Kopi luwak.
Civet coffee is a type of coffee that's made from coffee beans which are excreted whole in the droppings (excrement/poop) of the Asian palm civet. The type of coffee depends on the variety of beans the civet eats.
For the most part, civet coffee is not harvested in the wild in limited quantities but mass produced by animals kept in appalling conditions

Good info.
I saw some for sale on PP in 2017 where I bought beans and wondered about that story some native roamed the jungle picking them out of shit.
Now what?
Civiets returned to Cambodia?
Be nice if they traced the seller.
I bought some $17/kilo Khmer coffee at Psar Angkor that tastes like shit.
