    Nothing to do with fishes, but sobering news nonetheless, this was announced yesterday.

    And impossible to deny human culpability in this instance.

    All comes back to human greed and thoughtlessness

    Unfortunately the news does not get any better…

    Taken from the news artical…

    “You’ve got to imagine an animal walking around with a gold horn; that’s what you’re looking at, that’s the value and that’s why you need incredibly high security.”

    I actualy believe that I’d condone the shooting to death of poachers caught in the act. And thats not something I take lightly. If thats what is needed to preserve other species then I’m all for it.

    You might find you’ve shot the wrong end of the ‘food chain’ though. Won’t there always someone in a poor country who’ll take the risks to supply a demand? Remove the demand … ideally by some means other than shooting it though
