Not good enough..what are they holding him for?
Unless they're working him over trying to get all the names they can out of him I say cut your losses and just shoot the POS - and use one of his own bullets.
Thanks for the news Jill..
And sorry Karma, I owe you one for meaning that

"They were arrested following the poaching of eight rhino on the farm Klipkopspruit, near Brits. One of them was a ranger. - Sapa " - If that ranger is found to be guilty - he has betrayed his employer, the innocent animals that were depending on his protection, and all his colleagues who so bravely put their lives on the line to protect the animals.... awful. Thank God the police got them in the end - hopefully all of them.

The world needs stronger laws against poaching that are enforced. I hope all of them go to jail and they never poach again.

Noted - low life pieces of shit - they shouldn't even be held in custody - they should be taken somewhere and hacked to death. I now have my 'Mark of the Rhino' on my wrist - it is an initiative to raise fund for security for each rhino. Wakey wakey South Africa!!!!!!

For every one poacher caught, there are dozens waiting to carry on. If the Asian countries stopped demanding the supply of rhino horn, for so called and nonexistent medicinal cures, this problem would not exist. Money and greed are the motivating factors here with no regard for the very real possibility of the extinction of the rhino. This is not a situation of our making and are working very hard to resolve this problem.

@ Pam, poverty does indeed play a part, but greed and disregard for life are what fuels the fire...♥
