    A vendor in Wangchin district of Phrae province was arrested by soldiers and police after she was found to have in possession slaughtered porcupines for sale.


    Ms Pailin Kaeodam, 44, a vendor at a market in Phrae, was stopped for check after she drove in a motorcycle passing a security checkpoint on Highway 1048 from Thorn to Thung Saliem in Thoen district carrying two fertilizer bags.


    The search of the bags showed eight slaughtered porcupines concealed in four small bags weighing about 60 kilogrammes and porcupines inards, weighing about 2.6 kg.


    Ms Pailin admitted that she bought the slaughtered porcupines from villagers in Thoen district in Lampang to sell in the market in Phrae.


    She bought them at 250 baht per kilogramme and sold it at 300 baht.


    Police initially charged her for having in possession carcasses of protected wildlife species and for wildlife trade. She was later sent to Thoen police station for detention.

    Of course, if she ran a multi million dollar construction company she would have received bail.

    On the topic of porcupines, I found some thing interesting and a little amusing.

    The urban slang for the word.....

    porcupine
    A woman that has really been around

    comes from the phrase "if she had as many dicks on her as shes had in her she'd look like a porcupine"

    damn dude u fucked mary too so did greg ,john, curtis, and about 15 other guys before them

    yea that bitch is a porcupine for sure

    Why are the carcasses blurred out in that Thai PBS photo? Protect their identity?

    Even with the critters blurred, they look more like pangolins than porcupine.
