Kill all humans whom have or are intruding into animals habitats, this will send a clear message to evryone, especially local residents to get out and stay out of animals lands, and poachers will no longer be able to hide amongst local residents

If the local residents were educated about the value of the native wildlife (tourism, etc), as well as rewarded for telling authorities about the poachers, then maybe we could shut down the poachers more quickly.

Don't these most ignorant of people realise THEY are actually killing their 'goose that laid the golden egg' The elephants are worth much, much more alive as a tourist attraction than in some pathetic, ignorant Asian person's medicine bottle or carved into a trinket.

The complete original article . Translated into French and published on Love Animalia Naturalis
One of the best "weapons" to fight the killing of animals in wildlife is not only to educate people about their backup, but to help them meet their basic needs, in short, fight endemic. poverty. ..RIP for these poor animals.
Leonardo was not a visionary, but a Cartesian who understood that human expansion would create many evils when he said there will come a day when man will punish the killing of an animal like a be human ... (in course, because of the scarcity of species)

I'll keep my cranky comment to a minimum.....I'd love to stuff these arrows waaaay up where the sun don't shine. Let the poachers see what a long drawn out death by poison goes like. Bastards. Thanks Jill
