The Long Binh border guard station in An Phu District on July 24 uncovered a number of wild animals left in a motorboat on the bank of Hau River in Khanh An Commune.

Smugglers took advantage of the night to flee away, leaving behind a motorboat carrying 10 cartons of wild animals, including 52 iguanas and 42 turtles with a total weight of 335kg.  

The animals have been handed over to the provincial Forest Protection Department and the case is being further investigated.
