With the Philippine's horrible record of poaching, I didn't know they even had a fine system.

I hope they give these poachers the maximum sickening to hear they killed them all to avoid detection.

Also hope poachers given max - would be nice they were treated like the animals found! It's about time we see some positive results against poachers. Kinda tired of only seeing that they got away!
