Did you know it can cost less than a dollar to kill a big cat? A wire snare is cheap to make, easy to set and deadly for big cats. Whether used by local people hunting for food, or by highly organized poachers killing cats for their skins and bones,

At least it is some consolation that the team managed to save Ngyoe's life, but such a shame that her cubs paid with their lives.

Snares and traps should be banned forever. It is so tragic when people deliberately injure innocent animals with their cruelty.

a wire snare trap costs only a dollar, this is the price of animal life
a sad reality to break the heart of any sensible person.
I hope that the rest of life can Ngoye cards better than last months
