Stop Exotic Wildlife Trafficking

Target: Thongsing Thammavong, Prime Minister of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic

Goal: End the trafficking, abuse, and murder of exotic animals at a Laotian resort.

Tigers, bear cubs, and dozens of other species of exotic and endangered animals are killed and served as food to tourists at a resort in a special economic haven sprawled across Laos, Myanmar, and Thailand. This is despicable and cannot be allowed to continue. Demand that the Laotian government shut down this resort and end these abuses.

According to a report released by the Environmental Investigation Agency, a resort run by the Chinese company Kings Romans Group in the Golden Triangle Special Economic Zone has become a hotbed for illegal animal trafficking and abuse. Ignoring international law, the resort hosts buyers and sellers of endangered animals like tigers, bears, rhinos, leopards, and elephants.

Visiting gamblers and tourists take advantage of the lawlessness and availability of these exotic species by openly purchasing these animals—or, as the case may be, parts of animals—and dining on them. One of the favorite items on the menu is “tiger bone wine,” which is made in-house from tigers the resort captures and raises.

The activities taking place at this resort make a mockery of international wildlife protection laws and conservation as a whole. Sign the petition below to demand that the government of the Loa People’s Democratic Republic shut down this disgusting resort immediately.


Dear Prime Minister Thammavong,

I am writing you today regarding the Kings Romans Group establishment in the Golden Triangle Special Economic Zone. This resort has become a haven for illegal animal traders and murderers, and must be shut down.

The Lao People’s Democratic Republic is a signatory of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. This agreement binds all countries that sign it to enforce laws banning endangered animal breeding for trade purposes. The Kings Romans Group-operated resort is actively breaking those laws, or at minimum allowing them to be broken by third parties on its property.

Because your country owns the land that this resort is on, it falls on you to address the issue and ensure that this place complies with both your own domestic wildlife trade laws and those of international agreements like the one above. The lives of countless endangered animals are in your hands.

This is a matter of international concern that you and your government are bound to address. I demand that you shut down the resort at once and end its illegal wildlife trafficking and abuse.

  1. HOW TO STOP THIS??????


  2. michael guest says:

    Enough! Too much slaughtering on wildlife has gone way, way too far. Get these brutal attacks banned once and for all.

  3. Rose-marie Grobbelaar says:

    What is there to say. As long as there are humans on earth, the slaughtering, cruelty, brutality and killing will go on. Animals do not stand a chance against such an onslaught of violence and hatred.

  4. What I found out today is that thousands of tiger bones are being fermented in vats in China to make tiger bone wine that sells for over $300.00 a bottle. It looks like that many of the customers are buying this wine knowing that tigers in the wild will probably be extinct in the next ten or fifteen years so the wine will be very valuable to the exporter. These people don’t care if the tigers are extinct just so they make themselves rich off of what’s left of them. What a sick planet we live on.

  5. How horrific! This is so cruel & unconscionable not to mention immoral, criminal, shameful — and for what purpose? Just to make a couple of dollars!

    Are you not ashamed? There are so many ways to earn money!

    How can any society accept this, tolerate such brutality upon animals — it’s shameful, irrational, immoral, hateful and merciless.

    I hope, and will do everything in my power, that the LAW will come crashing down on you with severe punishment and penalties! THIS RESORT OF HORROR SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN IMMEDIATELY!
