NAKHON RATCHASIMA: Another two gaurs were found dead in Wang Nam Khieo district on Sunday, raising the number of dead gaurs found this month to three.

The carcasses of the two gaurs, believed to have been shot to death, were found by villagers in the forest at the foot of Khao Phaeng Ma mountain near Khao Phaeng Ma village in tambon Wang Nam Khieo.

The first carcass was found with only the skin and the head, while the meat and inside organs had been removed. The other carcass, believed to be of a male gaur, was still in good condition. The two weighed more than 1,000 kilogrammes each.

Officials from the Khao Phaeng Ma game reserve examined the carcasses this morning, before filing a complaint with Wang Nam Khieo police.

On Nov 8, the carcass of the first gaur was found in a tapioca plantation near Wat Pa Sangkhathan of Tha Wang Sai village in tambon Wang Mi of Wang Nam Khieo district. A suspect was arrested on Friday. He is a tapioca farmer who claimed his plantation had been ravaged by gaurs.
