According to the Head of Agriculture and Rural Development Division of Thanh Hoa district, member of the interdisciplinary inspection team - Nguyen Kinh Kha, the inspection of wildlife trade at Thanh Hoa Agricultural Product Market was drastically carried out by the district over the past time. Initially, it was effective when business households no longer displayed wild animals for sale or slaughtered that caused repugnantly, some banned animals such as storks, snakes, rare and precious animals were no longer displayed at the market. However, it still takes time to tighten the management of the origin of animals for business households to agree on implementation.
