The Scorpion investigation team visited the market on Saturday (28th January 2017) and found some long-tailed macaque infants for sale in the market. According to information from some traders, the animals on sale in this market were captured from the forest without a permit. Transportation to this market is not covered with a transportation permit (SATS-DN).
The method of display of the long-tailed macaque infants was also very cruel. Their necks were chained, and they had no access to drinking water 4/7.
