The only way to deal with it - poach the poachers and anyone associated with them.

It appears that the slaughter of many animals (to the point of extinction) is all about chinese medicine even tho' some chinese medicine practitioners have openly said that synthetic compounds are more effective. what a wonderful legacy to a country (tongue firmly planted in cheek)!!..... we killed off x numbers of animals for our medicine.. when the animals are gone, will they then turn to the synthetics. I remember working in an international airport and one old lady from asia coming to canada with dozens of deer penises sewn into hidden pockets in her coat. she was absolutely livid when we confiscated these items. bears are poached for paws and gall bladders in our province, but with hardly any conservation officers left, there are very few on the front lines to help stop this insiduous behaviour.

Samantha, the interesting but sad thing is that, in many countries, those who actually do try to stop this behavior lose their jobs, are demoted, or are transferred to other positions where they do not make as much noise.
