A friend of mine on Facebook sent me this screen capture. I am shocked.
It says
"Selling this for friend
Its wings got problems
Selling at HKD$6000"

Any possible actions on this ?

We have reported this incident to the AFCD. They have also received similar cases from the public and have been monitoring such activities. If there is adequate information, they will take corresponding enforcement actions.
We would like to take this opportunity to urge people (and remind your friends) not to buy protected birds as pets, in order to prevent fueling the illegal pet trade and facilitating the over-exploitation of the wild population which then leads to species extinction.
