Siamnest company, which has the concession for collecting bird’s nests from the 107 caves in Phatthalung’s seven islands, sent its teams off to collect nests from September 9 to 17.
However, when the collectors arrived at the last cave, they found no nests but instead, the carcasses of more than a million birds, the remains of a fire and trash including plastic bottles and shoes.
The damage from this bird massacre has been estimated at about 5 billion baht.
Phatthalung authorities, meanwhile, have contacted the Department of Special Investigation to see if they will consider taking on the case.
