Thai officials save thousands of endangered animals

Officials say they have seized nearly 3000 rare animals in one of the biggest wildlife trafficking busts in Thailand this year.

Among the animals are some protected by international conventions on endangered species.

The illegal wildlife trade is said to be rife in Thailand and generates billions of dollars worldwide.
