Wild Meat Has been Selling along the road in Kampong Chnang

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Mon Jan 15, 2018 7:56 pm

Kampong Chnang: Wild meat, from animals as well as many birds, is on sale everyday along the national road 5, in Rorleak Phoia, Kampomg Chnang. According to the local people, hunters are going out every night to hunt and trap wild animals to sell.
The sellers are scared that the officials will catch up with them, but there have been no sign of the authorities coming to inspect this illegal business, so the wild animal meat sellers are doing a roaring trade until somebody decides to crackdown.

It looks like a freshly-butchered jungle-cat?

I thought it looked like some kind of cat.

Are there many wild cats in Cambodia? I’ve never really looked into it.

Depends on whether you believe the claims. There were pictures from camera traps circulating a few years ago year claiming a few in koh Kong amdhave heard a few eyewitness accounts in koh Kong, and some in the press this year about a small fishing cat which was though to be extinct

There are a few species, there's the Jungle Cat (Felis chaus):

These can be big enough, 36cm at the shoulder.

There's the much rarer Asian Golden Cat (Catopuma temminckii) :
Image

The also rare Marbled Cat (Pardofelis marmorata) (it has a very limited range in this country). :

Image

The Leopard Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis) :

Image

There's also this Spotted Linsang that you can find here, I'm not sure if it would be considered a cat or a weasel.
