The sad fact is that the scarcer the animal, the higher the reward for poachers. Pam W. is right to an extent, but over and above need is greed. Therefore it is unlikely that poaching will ever stop.

I wish they just release poisoned stockpiles into the system to reduce demand. That might buy some time to develop better systems to prevent future deaths.

We seriously need to do everything and use everything in our power to put an end to poaching. Catch the bastards and do what they did in days gone by. Take them to some remote place and keep torturing them until they give up the names of all involved.

Noted!! I would like to suggest to just shoot them with zero tollerance= but that wouldn't be very PC.

Poaching has been around for so long. Add profit to this, there will always be poachers. Good thing there are concerned citizens, add technology, this makes for lean-picking for poachers. The blame is shared by those who buy goods derived from poaching. Greed and profit make for a bad combination.
