On the 1st September, in Bungus city, we succeeded to recover a huge Buffy Fish-Owl (Ketupa ketupu) bound for Padang city in order to be sold. The animal was held for 2 days in a cardboard box with tied up feet. He was in good health, no injury, although a little bit stressed. So, we released the Buffy Fish-Owl in the evening at our site!
