Forest rangers at Cat Tien National Park on Wednesday found two men trying to catch wild animals in the protected area and handed them over to the police, news website VnExpress reported.
The rangers discovered a tent illegally set up inside the park in Dong Nai Province during their patrol two days earlier.
They entered the tent and found two critically-endangered Javan pangolins, two lesser mouse-deers, a monitor lizard and a monkey.
All of the animals were alive and kept in sacks.
They also found traps and equipment used by hunters.
The owners were identified as Nguyen Van Hai, 49, and Doan Van Long, 31, according to the rangers.
The duo were then handed over to Dong Nai police for investigation.
