This looks like we are glad that man is killed, and yes, we are, he got what he deserved!
If we start shooting them they might stop killing animals!
March 2014: A suspected wildlife poacher was shot dead at Lake Nakuru National Park
on 18 March 2014. Police recovered weapons from the body, including a bow, four poisoned arrows,
and a spear. Two of the man’s accomplices escaped and were able to flee with one horn.
However the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) were able to recover three horns from the scene
of the crime.
Lake Nakuru has been hit hard by rhino poaching. Four rhinos have been lost in the Park
since the start of 2014. On a national level, 16 rhinos have so far died in Kenya;
13 were killed by poachers, and three were lost to natural causes.
During the course of 2013 a total of 59 rhinos died in the country.
Where poaching crimes have been committed, KWS have undertaken work to bring
those responsible to justice. Last year their work lead to the arrest of 1,549 offenders,
the recovery of 68 fire arms, 2,630 rounds of ammo, 10,106kg of bush meat,
and 13.5 tonnes of contraband ivory.
The Service say that the majority of smuggled contraband ivory enters Kenya from neighbouring countries,
and that there has since been a decline in the use of Kenya ports to smuggle ivory since
they heightened surveillance in these areas.
KWS is working to build the capacity of park rangers in combat new poaching methods
that arise by way of a training academy in Manyani, and have recently implemented
and equipped a Rapid Deployment Unit to support ranger teams
in vulnerable conservation areas that host endangered species.
Bring them all down!
