I hope this petition will gather signatures in time.
It could be that this could happen at any time. I did not know execution by hanging existed in Zimbabwe!

This is an affront to justice! In the line of duty, Maxwell Bowa shot a man during a criminal act. This sounds like Zimbabwe sanctions the poaching of endangered and protected animals. Shame! This decision MUST be overturned.

Signed and noted. Thanks for sharing, Jill. As far as I'm concerned, the park rangers should be allowed to kill the poachers so they don't kill the animals.

It's a war. The poachers are heavily armed and prepared to kill the rangers. It's regrettable that anybody died, but circumstances need to be taken into consideration. I hope the ranger is granted a pardon.

Signed! This is disgraceful. Rangers should be given more protection, better weapons and supported by their government, not be made scapegoats because of greed. Sounds like somebody was being paid off here.
