All poachers should be shot. The more poachers that are shot the more animals that live.

Noted! Well, now the poachers can have their bones made into beautiful necklaces and other uses and given to the elephants to adorn them with. Could also add, that perhaps their bones could be made into an aphrodisiac for the elephants, so that they could replenish the species...But, anyone who would slaughter an animal for it's body parts, is no man at all. Therefore, wouldn't have any such abilities in his genes to be of reproductive use!

Way to many people in the world. I say get rid of the criminals. This doesn't hurt my feeling at all and think these countries need to put their military in the field to protect these magnificent beasts. Don't catch these criminals, shoot to kill. If you don't, they will only be back to do it again.
