    I do think people seem to be confusing poachers with American 'big game hunters' here. There is a hell of a difference.

      most of the poachers are just trying to feed their families.

      It's the people who buy the stuff that should be vilified

      As an aside, when it comes to Africa and hunting, this is one of the best novels I've ever read. Its epic, and I cannot BELIEVE nobody has written a screenplay for it yet. There's a lion attack in it so graphic I was chewing my FIST as I read it.
      READ ALL HIS BOOKS .....hes brilliant...!!

      It's all too easy to blame the poachers though isnt it, like they do it for fun
      They arent exactly trophy hunters, nor mostly educated, so an "easy" but dangerous way to put food on the table. Guess it's karma to most. Nothing to do with the state of SA as a whole of course where the problems stem from
      There are other jobs. Many just see poaching as a way to make a quick buck

      Would you advocate murdering somebody for their money because they are hungry? No, you wouldn’t so there’s absolutely no justification in poaching endangered species just because your family needs feeding. Find another way. Like other people do. Scum.

      rhino's are poached for their horns which are sent to china or yemen ......it is a yemenese custom for a wealthy male to be given a rhino horn dagger on his 21st birthday or wedding night .....as always the chinese will powder and ingest anything if they think it will make their cock bigger....both facts , not googled .....just dragged out of the darkest , dankest part to the cerebral miasma.....!!
