Killing endangered species SHOULD be punishable by an excruciatingly painful death. PERIOD!

Noted. I am so distraught. What a catch 22. High tech is a great way to keep track of wildlife to protect and save them. Only selfish and ignorant people use it against the animals to kill them:( Thanks for posting Roseann.
