Wang Peng from 201Since 4 years, he has started to raise birds for a fortuitous opportunity. Later, he became obsessed with keeping parrots. He is also famous in the bird circle of Baoan District in Shenzhen. He once said: "The parrot is the boss and the son is the second child."

The family feels that the parrot is too noisy and has too much flavour. It has been arguing with Wang Peng many times, but it is nothing but him.

In April 2016, because his half-year-old son was ill, Wang Peng had no time to take care of him. At the same time, in order to change some money, he will raise two big "Little Sun" parrots and four mysterious ones. The wind parrot was sold to the bird dealer at a price of 500 yuan each.

Who knows, the bird dealer was later controlled by the police and implicated Wang Peng. On May 17, 2016, Wang Peng was taken away by the police together with dozens of parrots raised at home.

A police investigation revealed that two of the six parrots sold by Wang Peng were included in the Appendix to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, belonging to a protected animal. Wang Peng was arrested. "Illegal sale of valuable and endangered wild animals and their products."

The prison term begins on May 17, 2016 and ends on May 16, 2018.

The controversial point of this case is whether the two small sunbirds kept by Wang Peng belong to “precious and endangered wild animals”. Due to the attention of the legal community and the media, the "parrot case" caused a sensation.


When Wang Peng was arrested, his son was only half a year old. Now that two years have passed, his son will already call him a father and he will understand. However, my father's impression still stays with her parents' wedding photos.

Ren Panpan told the Legal Evening News reporter that at first the child was very young. She thought that the children did not know anything. Later, the child started to learn to call father with other children and began to have his own emotions and ideas. She thinks something has to be said with the child.

In the past few days, Ren Panpan startedSpeaking to his son Wang Peng, “Daddy came back in a few days and wanted to go to meet his father with his mother.”
