Poaching

This is the thread where I will post all the poaching news (there are so many, it deserves a thread of its own).

Man arrested at Indian airport trying to smuggle 12 IRNs:

I just signed a petition (I tried to post it but I couldn't find the way to put it here) to prosecute Thai poachers that, realizing they had been found, threw hundreds of animals (birds and reptiles) in the sea, still in the cages to kill them. No wonder their species are becoming extinct!

I don't think these birds were poached because most of them were color mutations but it's illegal to keep them in India.

West Africa is becoming center of illegal poaching products distributor and although this article states that government officials are raising concerns about this, in reality, the African governments are entirely complicit. South AFrica has recently classified lions and other wildlife as 'cattle' so they can breed them and sell them and their body parts and Zimbawe sold 30 baby elephants they took from their mothers to China for zoos and circuses - an outrage!
