Thailand's illegal wildlife trade flourishes

Multi-billion-dollar racket in endangered tigers proves resilient in the face of police raids on slaughterhouses.

    In Thailand, the discovery of a slaughterhouse for wild animals has drawn international attention to the trade in endangered tigers.

    The police discovered a group of men in northwestern Bangkok chopping up several carcasses, including two wild tigers.

    But as Al Jazeera's Veronica Pedrosa reports from the Thai capital, a week after the police raid the illegal business said to be worth billions of dollars continues as usual.
