      Well, it happened in our country.
      That’s the one reason why so many traveler visiting PASTY Pets market.
      This situation started since the government can not provide jobs or vacancy for the people.
      Especially for villager and the people who has no skill/education.
      They catch the wild animals and sell it for survival reason.
      Well, you can’t judge or blame to the persons who sell the animals.
      They just use their instinct to survive.
      Maybe it’s better if you blame to the government who can not provide job vacancy, good education and good economics growth.
