A question and sort of a light survey as well.
With observations of wild caught animals found in jars of alcohol or market places, how do you all think they should be marked? (EDIT: this is referring to local markets/local use, not markets far from where the species is normally found).
Here in Vietnam it’s common to find many species in situations like this and it’s clear that the vast majority of them are captured by poachers, not raised in captivity for this purpose.

An example in a marketplace: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/24162832
Another example in a marketplace: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/24269805
In each of the above cases the animals were taken from the wild.
My own feeling is that they should be marked as “wild” rather than “not wild”.
What’s the community take on this issue?
