    I agree 100% James, someone is paying these poachers enough money to make them want to risk their life for it the big money guy is the one that needs taken out.

    maybe we could hire the A-Team. Definitely they want no government involvement and, heck, most of the time they never charge a fee when all is said and done.

    Glad they killed many of those poachers.
