There should be a HUGE fine on stupid a-holes buying their products too. Like wiping out their bank accounts to pay their karmic debt and revive these endangered species.

Good, that is what they need to keep doing. Make it so killing our precious wildlife is too expensive to even try to do it. Thanks Cher

Rosann has the right idea anyone involved in the destruction of these magnificent beasts should have all their wealth confiscated. The money gained thereby can pay for more rangers.

Needs to have the death penalty attached to the this fine. An eye for an eye.

BETTER IDEA ... shoot on sight, no repeats, much cheaper and at the same time sets an example to those that would otherwise follow.

It would be considered a big fine and it will complement the criminal and administrative charges. Hoping it will be enforced heavily!!
Noted, read with great interest. Thank You Cher.

The death penalty would be more appropriate then they would kill no more of these animals.

Good! Hit 'em where it hurts, in their wallets though I'd like to see a higher fine along with more jail time.

Along with this fine that I think should be higher they should also have to serve time in prison and help to protect the survival of these big cats.
