Thailand Going After Mr Big
In this photo taken June 2, 2011, a young Indian roofed turtle crawls on the fingers of a custom officer during a news conference on wildlife seized in Bangkok, Thailand. Officials at Thailand's gateway airport proudly tick off the illegally trafficked wildlife they have seized over the past two years. But Thai and foreign law enforcement officers tell another story: officials working-hand-in-hand with the traffickers ensure that other shipments through Suvarnabhumi International Airport are whisked off before they even reach customs inspection.
