Another case where the government is avoiding their own laws for profit. Everywhere greed is breeding corruption. There is precious little morallity left in the world. It gravely disheartens me.

I wonder who's buying this illegally harvested rosewood at prices to validate this sort of corruption? Probably overcompensated CEOs

Make me sick to see how the government distroys, something that I don't feel is even their's to touch.When will they ever learn?...when their children, grandchildren ask, what happen to Mother Nature? Sorry to say it will be too late for them to feel their guilt.
Thanks Cal

These people should be hung in a public arena as an example of what not to do.

How come these loggers are getting away with this? Why is the government not protecting these forests?

This is a sad, sad result of people living in poverty and others having obscene amounts of money to hoard and profit from illegal gains from natural resources. If a way is not found to stop this kind of devastation, our Earth will be killed off..... and the meek will inherit the Earth (or what's left of it)

Government don't care about the future of this planet. When they already do something to stop electrocuting the wildlife?

Very sad. Human greed. If animals were permitted to destroy human homes, then that would be a fair fight.
