India and its pet parrot problem

The poaching is SOOOOOO bad in India that Calcutta's High Court (like a state Supreme Court) is taking Suo Moto Cognizance Of Illegal Smuggling & Trading ('suo moto' is when a situation is so very bad and common that the court takes a case on its own without anybody actually presenting it to them)

An article that proposes giving the owners of exotic animals in India amnesty so as to start fresh and then apply laws:

So so terrible- I saw a photo a few years back of the back of a truck covered in dead IRNs where they got too hot and all died from someone’s greed trying to drive them over a border in airtight containers.

Yes, the poaching in Asia is TERRIBLE! And in Africa, too. They are going to end up with no native animals...
