Where I come from, poaching is a crime-period, no fancy terms/words, blablabla-and it can get the perpetrator shot by a landowner, if a game warden doesn’t get them first- whether they are cutting trees or shooting game, they are likely toast...
I didn’t realize that was not the case elsewhere-where are all the game wardens in Africa-don’t they enforce the law?
I’m sure that game wardens in Africa can be paid off to look the other way. Africa in general is one of the worst examples of “pay to play”, for anything one wants; the corruption is quite horrid.
Take note that the UN is trying to plop another agenda on top of the crime of poachingthe “environmentalist” agenda. It’s like throwing the “hate crime” agenda on top of other crimes.
