Poor animals don't stand a chance with these subhuman beings - why do they have to exist? Why does money result in such evil? Let these people kill each other not innocent animals.
God will it ever end.

Yes Miss Jen D., the article contained sadness, but in light of that one of the biggest traffickers in the illicit animal trade was taken down, captured and incarcerated. Hopefully his businesses and associates will go the same way and that this time he cannot bond out.

His capture does indeed send a signal to others that partake in the disgusting trade to be forewarned...authorities are getting serious.

Still though, to totally eliminate the desire to sell animals illegally, governments must educate the possible buyer populace of the wrongs in doing business with these traffickers and the lasting harm inflicted on nature...

Whenever I see this tragic photo of illegal bear farming i.e. milking, makes me so sad, including story that shows
poachers are well connected even protected. Good that famous traffickers is captured. This spider net must
be cut inside and fallowed by strict law. Low life level always live space that one who should watch will
close eyes. So education from early age is good solution.

Oh to wave a magic wand and make it all better! - to instil values and the courage to do what is right!
