In this photo taken June 2, 2011, a Thai custom officer shows an Indian gharial, a type of crocodile native of India, with its mouth tied at a news conference on wildlife seized in Bangkok, Thailand. Officials at Thailand's gateway airport proudly tick off the illegally trafficked wildlife they have seized over the past two years. But Thai and foreign law enforcement officers tell another story: officials working-hand-in-hand with the traffickers ensure that other shipments through Suvarnabhumi International Airport are whisked off before they even reach customs inspection.
