Every week PLCN members put their lives at risk to save the forest, while patrolling in Prey Lang. Last week 27-year old PLCN member Roeung Run was attacked and severely injured by a wild boar while patrolling a community forest in Kratie’s Sambor district. Another PLCN member states to the Phnom Penh Post how the wild boar might have felt threatened by Roeung Run because it had been injured by a snare and that might have caused it to attack.

Roeung Run is currently in the hospital and his condition has improved according to Kea Hong, director of the Kratie Provincial Referral Hospital.
