Hack off half of a rhinoceros face just to get it’s horn and leave it there to bleed out and suffer a heinous death. Kill a beautiful elephant just to get it’s tusks from it to make useless baubles for some jackass to display or wear. Kill a stunning lion, leopard, panther, or tiger just for it’s Hyde or just so some braggart piece of crap can say that they killed it! And is that supposed to impress someone, the fact that it was a one sided kill and you had a weapon and the animal didn’t and you killed it? Wouldn’t it be more impressive to say that you killed an animal on a level playing field, let’s see you go after a lion in a fair fight, hand to hand combat!
There are places in the world where a thief get’s their hand cut off if they steal, right? Well it’s just as simple to cure poachers from senselessly killing animals that will be extinct in the near future if they are allowed to continue. When a poacher is caught, do to them what they intended to do to the animals they hunt, okay, okay, if you want to be humane about it then kill them quicker but either way, put them to death. They try to cut off half of a Rhinos face then cut off half of theirs, leave them overnight and if they are alive in the morning, patch them up just enough for them to survive with half a face and send them on their way! If they shoot an elephant to get their tusks then shoot them with a small caliber bullet and pull out their teeth, cut off their ears and see how they fare!
Sounds brutal you say? What about what’s being done to these helpless animals at the hands of these bottom of the barrel poachers? Why is it okay for them to brutally torture these animals and get away with it? Then we have those people out there that are so misinformed and uneducated that they believe that a tigers penis, tiger bone, and bear bile will help in getting their penises erect! Remove the mindset and educate these people, make these ridiculous folk remedies unavailable already!
Endless numbers of animals are being eradicated daily because harsh, swift action is not being taken to stop the killing. I thought that Canada was among the most brutal for killing all of the seal they possibly can and truly believing that there’s nothing wrong with it, but this is a global problem that needs to be dealt with immediately and most certainly a hell of a lot harsher than it currently is. I would think that Africa would deal with the poachers over there more drastically as it is a big draw to tourists to be able to see the wildlife that can’t be seen elsewhere.
Believe me, if poachers knew that the penalty of their actions was death and/or dismemberment they would most certainly think twice before continuing to poach! Imagine… hmm my penis or some cash, half of my face or some cash, a bullet in me or some cash, suffering and bleeding out with no immediate medical care or some cash. There would be a whole lot less poaching, now that’s not to say that there wouldn’t still be some moron out there that would still risk poaching but it would indeed cut down on most of it once and for all!
