    "Hunters" Kill Endangered Tiger in Russia

    The article should have been titled, Poachers Kill Endangered Tiger... For those who think we should not police ourselves, I think the title says everything. Fortunately they identify the hunters as poachers in the article. But how many millions of people will think of these people as hunters versus poachers or one in the same. Oh well, rant over.

    calling a poacher a hunter is like calling a drug pusher a pharmacist.

    It's a dirty shame! They have to start making harsher penalties on killing these endangered animals before they vanish. 1-3 year penalties & minimal fines will never curtial the senseless killing! 20 years or even death might just make these people think twice before doing it!
