Noted, Signed and Shared !! Laws NEED to be STRICTER and then "ENFORCE THEM" with the MAXIMUM SENTENCE !!!! Make EXAMPLES out of these ???? for the WORLD to SEE !!!! Education can "HELP" the children so they can Learn that this is WRONG and What Happens when we do these things, especially that EXTINCTION is FOREVER !!!!
Thank-You Christeen ....

Sad news...get rid of the markets to save the animals. How do you fight tradition and lack of education...and in many cases, lack of medical help.
