Thai wildlife officials perform checks on a white lion after it was anaesthetized, at a house where more than 200 live wild animals including 14 white lions were discovered last week, on the outskirts of Bangkok on June 19, 2013. Police said the lions were believed to have been brought into the country using permits for sales to zoos, but instead offered to private buyers. Thailand has a reputation as a hub of international wildlife smuggling to feed strong demand in Asia for unusual pets and traditional medicines made from animal parts.
