Field staff of Scorpion Foundation in Batangtoru visited the bird sale location on 25 April 2020 and took some photographs. These birds were captured in Sibabangun, Central Tapanuli. According to a source, protected birds are often on sale in this location but when visiting the location Scorpion did not find any protected animals. This locaton need to be monitored further. All wildlife captures must be covered by permit from BBKSDA, and transportation of any wildlife (protected or non-protected) must also be accompanied by transport permit (SATS-DN) from BBKSDA.
