Yes, every last one of them. Might be an idea to consider the same for the toffs shooting the hen harriers here. It might not be them doing the shooting but they’ll have knowledge and will be employing the peasant that does the shooting. Pretty sure one of the two dear princes shot at least one in the past too.

Re: Pure Justice

If anti-poaching gamekeepers are allowed to shoot poachers, why don't they let these Americans, who like to shoot things, to join in on the hunt for poachers.

I'm sure there are lots who would pay to shoot poachers...

Re: Pure Justice

I’d pay to shoot the Americans that ‘hunt’ big game.
There seems to be a pattern here when people have far too much money and little to occupy their time.

“A search party struggled to find the body but eventually found a human skull and a pair of trousers on Thursday. ”

I get the sense the writer enjoyed writing that article.

Re: Pure Justice

Perhaps they could crush the skull down to a find powder, pass it off as Rhino horn and sell it to China.... Might help with the little problem they allegedly have there :-/.

Please may I remind everyone that this is a family-orientated forum and even, as in this case, when there is unanimity in our revulsion of certain practices like game poaching, any rich language vindicating the unlawful killing of an individual is not acceptable on this site.

Point taken.

However, if the various African governments entrusted with the preservation and protection of these endangered animals passed the necessary legislation, disposing of these vile individuals would not be illegal and the trade may be somewhat reduced. In many countries, at time of disasters or national emergencies, Looters are warned they will be shot on sight, so why not big game poachers ?

Apologies if anyone was offended by the "rich language" in the post Ian has highlighted.
