Wildlife, which this country is endowed with, is - without any scintilla of doubt - one of its most valuable assets.

How discussed it makes me feel that my own species can do something so cruel just for some coins!

Poachers are a plague that needs a serious extermination, they are a threat for wild life and nature.
Thanks Jill

I hope the work to catch them continues & find it very disturbing that some enlisted to help are part of the ugliness...

Jill we can only hope that poachers will receive the justice they deserve, that being a lifetime behind bars!

Have you been to Tanzania? I have...many times.

It's one of the poorest countries in Africa. Until you do something about that will NEVER eliminate poaching!

If a poacher can make a year's salary by killing one rhino....he will.

Shooting them on sight is ridiculous because another will pop up to take his place.

If you REALLY want to be part of the part of the effort to educate Tanzanians and provide ways for them to make a living which doesn't involve poaching.

Excellent idea! I am extremely happy to hear more and more people thinking this way! I say mutilate them all and leave them all by themselves to bleed to death alone and in agony! And find all the other people involved in poaching and do the same to them too! Problem solved forever!

They show no respect at all - they never will. I hope that eventually they will destroy themselves. THese barbarians that call themselves humans do not belong on this planet. Throw them to the lions!
