Countries across Africa are trying with extremely limited budgets to protect animals from poachers.

Catching poachers and making an example of each one is a strong tool in the limited tool box of those who fight for the animals every day. I hope this King pin gets something less than royal treatment.

This man needs to be made an example in terms of fine and prison term. A standard needs to be created.
