VietNamNet Bridge – Three farms permitted to experimentally breed wild
animals are located in the southern province of Binh Duong. A recent
inspection revealed that they had thousands of rare animals of nearly
100 species.

They are the Thai Binh Duong Beer Company, Dai Nam Zoo Company and Thanh
Canh Private Company.

The local authorities recently inspected these firms to discover whether
they met conditions to breed wild animals in cages or not. They found
out that Thai Binh Duong had 723 wild animals, including 31 tigers, 7
panthers and six Tibetan bears, which are listed as extremely rare
animals.

These rare animals were bred in two places: in Noi Hoa village, Binh An
commune and Ngai Thang village, Binh Thang commune, both in Di An
district. This company couldn’t produce legal documents related to these
locations. The firm’s fresh-water crocodile ponds also didn’t have waste
water treatment systems.

Inspectors affirmed that on this farm, only three species – tiger,
panther and fresh-water crocodile – are reproductive.

Dai Nam had 583 wild animals, including large numbers of tigers and rare
bears. Inspectors asked the firm to urgently complete its tiger breeding
scheme to submit to concerned agencies in the next three months for
consideration.

Inspectors recommended the firm obey the Convention on International
Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and not
raise tigers for commercial purposes.

The farm of Thanh Canh has 245 animals only but inspectors asked it to
urgently carry out several activities, including constructing a waste
water treatment system and adding wild animal raising onto its business
licence.
