The two agencies have circulated a warning letter to breeders in Nakhon Pathom, who over the weekend killed hundreds of piglets in a public area in protest to the government over falling prices.

Internal Trade Department director-general Siripol Yodmuangcharoen said Monday that he had talked with Yukol Limlamthong, deputy permanent secretary of the Agriculture and Cooperatives Ministry, about the ministry taking legal action against the breeders.
