A hog badger which is native to Central and Southeast Asia was seized by market security personnel at the Mohnyin Township municipal market in Kachin state on 23 August.
“The hog badger is an endangered species”, said U Maung Win, the administrator of the Indawgyi wildlife sanctuary. “It is now undergoing veterinary treatment in the forest.”
The hog badger is omnivorous, active by day and not very wary of humans.
