Disgusting! Poachers are lower than even coal-rollers. Law enforcement of any kind should have the right to shoot them on sight. Dead.

Most of the turtle species reproduce very slowlywood turtles, for example, do not start breeding until they are 17 years or oldermaking populations extremely vulnerable when even a few turtles are poached. They also play an important ecological role in their wetland habitats. As turtle researcher Litzgus told The Canadian Press, by protecting them, we protect everything in that wetland.Unfortunately our environmental laws have fallen to the wayside with the present Government. Thank You for this article Christeen.
