More proof that poachers are utter scum, beneath even child molesters. IMHO, when poachers are caught, they should be stripped naked, rubbed down with raw meat, and set down in front of a pride of hungry lions. Or tigers, or bears - oh my! Hell, let's sell tickets to the event and take bets on how long the a-hole will live. Proceeds can go to a four-star charity such as African Wildlife Foundation.
