Phan Thiet Post Office Keeping Endangered Wildlife on Display

The Binh Thuan provincial post office on Nguyen Tat Thanh Street in Phan Thiet has kept endangered gibbons in small cages for years now. They also keep macaques and protected birds. I've never been certain of the legality of a government office keeping these animals on display--but when it was recently looked into, I found out the gibbon(s) suddenly disappeared. Below are photos from the post office in Phan Thiet, taken earlier this summer.
