BANGKOK — A South Korean actress has been charged in Thailand with catching endangered giant clams while participating in a reality TV show and could face up to four years in prison if found guilty, an official said Friday.

Actress Lee Yeol-eum cheered as she caught the three giant shellfish in a Thai national marine park in March on the survival TV show “The Law of the Jungle.” Participants in the show then ate the clams in an episode that aired on June 30.

Narong Kongeiad, chief of Hat Chao Mai National Park, said he filed police charges against Lee on Wednesday for violating wildlife laws by hunting the giant clams. The charge carries a maximum penalty of four years in prison and a fine of up to 40,000 baht ($1,300).

Think that the show's producers should share in some criminal responsibility for this.

We do know one thing about this though. Since she is such a novice at handling clams... well this joke just writes itself.

I was thinking the samething.
They aired it.
They should have told her to return them and taped her doing something else.

Of course, her arrest will pump up their ratings.

I bet no one involved with the show had any idea the clams were endangered, unless your a fisherman or involved somehow with marine life you’d have no idea
