Haslett is determined to keep trying.
"There's a definite shyness when it comes to naming the traffickers publicly," Haslett said. "But animal defenders need to close this gap. I don't know if it's fear of reprisals, legal considerations or just that it's a harder mission that doesn't promise quick, happy results."
One thing is clear, Haslett said. These animals need help, and traffickers need to feel the pressure. "If we don't start making them very, very uncomfortable they will go on doing what they're doing," he said.
This is a developing story. The Dodo will continue to follow the case.
