'Rebel' hunting [poaching]-Africa
The sad reality of out day....
~ "Rebel" armies of Africa, one of the most clear and ever-present dangers and enemies of wildlife, clearing virtually anything on their path with very little if any conscience or thoughts of future.[poaching]
Congo, Sudan, Sierra Leone, Angola, Rwanda, Nigeria, Liberia and more they all tell of similar horror stories of not only indifference towards human life but animal life as part of derived tragedy. ~
I'd like to see the vocal, "caring" and "brave" anti-hunting groups protest these guys. :confused:
African realities. South Sudan: Female white-eared kob after being shot down by The Sudan People's Liberation Movement members with AK47 from the road just south of Mongalla.
Hunting in Sudan is illegal, but instead poaching is a widely accepted practice, with no legal enforcement against it.
Second only to AK 47 and snares in importance to poachers: bicycles and rudimentary muzzle loaders. Well some of you may smile at the simplicity of African poachers but I assure it's no laughing matter, they kill more game than natural predators.

~ Rhinoceros enemy number one in the world today is Chinese traditional medicine, it's a clear fact.
So many tragic images of rhinos dehorned, bleeded and rotten in the sun but no one really has actually posted much graphic evidence of the final product.
So I put this together to better illustrate what the main cause of poaching is and the main guilty countries are two: China and Vietnam.
There is a completely unfounded and unproven belief that rhino horn has aphrodisiac, anti-typhoid, anti-oxidant, general tonic or even demon caster properties.
Pound per pound, at the higher end of the market for the SE Asian nouveau riche the rhino horn has now exceeded the price of gold! ~
KENYA, a country where big game hunting is outlawed but poaching is rampant. Notorious poachers like this one, are wrecking havoc on big game,with purposes from ivory to rhino horn to bush-meat, they wreck havoc..
A classic scenario in countries with no hunting, no adequate protection and fast losing wildlife whatever the name of the country: Kenya, India, China or Indonesia, you name it, poor wildlife protection and no hunting spell doom. But victory for animal right activist, who live in the imaginary world away from realities and nature.
And the 'poison' of poaching 'tools'
