The reduction in the number of arrests can be attributed to the fact that the case against nine alleged poachers arrested near Lephalale in March has been withdrawn in the local Magistrate's Court.

I wonder what made them dismiss these cases....oh yeah, bribery, a little money in the right hands.

This is why they should shoot these POS on sight.

Let's face it, they know these are not your run of the mill tourists in a National Park... You'd think the automatic rifles, knives and machetes would be a good giveaway.
Apparently not. What are they afraid of, a lawsuit by the scum that hired them?!

Kruger is designated for the health and welfare of some of our most endangered animals...what a huge tragedy yet again to read such reports. On the flip side actions are being taken and people are stepping up to stop the poachers. Why can't humans understand that the $ doesn't leave a legacy but it's what we do in this life that lives on!! Thank You for sharing, duly noted!!
