I think animal poaching is a very sad and scary thing. It's a form of murder and animal abuse. It's a very violent process to kill the animal. The fact that it's illegal makes me question why this cruelty is still going on without punishments. I think that it isn't fair to the animals because they don't have any say, and they deserve to live a long life.
I strongly agree with this website. It is a great tool to educate people on the harm being done to the world's animals. Animals are living creatures and they have feelings as well as humans. They deserve a voice.
It is not fair for any one to hurt endangered animals! If people need money they should try to get a job and earn money legally. Its unacceptable to be treating animals this way.
I thought that poaching was only for the people that were desperate for money and the the only animals that were poached would be rare and exotic. What I now know is that even areas near me, in Virginia, could be areas of poaching. And the danger of poaching is really significant. The whole species could go extinct or nearly extinct.
I think that there should be a special task force used to take down poachers. Not only does this help animals but it also creates new jobs. The poaching of animals isn't good especially because what happens when there are no more animals to poach. After that poachers might end up resorting to more violent crimes.
It would be a lot of work, but it may the only way to control poaching. People, although might have reasons, should not be allowed to go and hurt other species. Every organism in the world has feelings.
I believe animal poaching is a crime. Not just to animals but for humanity as well. We are killing some of the greatest creatures that live. We are wronging our future generations they say by 2020 most big cats, bears and elephants will be all gone if we keep hunting. So imagine having your child asking you what a elephant is because they are no more left, or what is a tiger because they are dead. We are wronging and killing our planet on so many levels and yet our excuse for this is we are superior. And yet we act more like animals than animals do. Animals don't commit atrocities and kill so many other animals for sport or for the thing we hold to so much value, special pieces of paper. That we get by killing trees which are also living things. They just want to reproduce and whatever they kill they normally eat or they kill it because of self defense they don't kill for some sick sport. So their punishment should be what they do to the animals.
Animal poaching is an unethical and is an issue that needs to be resolved. I feel that this problem is easily resolvable, but unfortunately isn't because of certain people trying to make money in exchange for the lives of animals. This website is a good device to spread awareness of this problem.
Animal poaching is horrible. People should not poach innocent animals that cant fight back. How is an animal going to fight back to a gun. Its immpossible! Its just wrong...and it needs to stop.
Animal poaching is wrong and very cruel. The animals did not do anything to us, so we should not harm them. They do not have a say in this. I feel bad for the snared giraffe and others because they were just living their normal lives until poachers harmed them. We must help the animals and stop this cruelty!
After talking about civil rights and civil liberties for people, it really made me look at animal poaching from a different perspective. We look at all the rights we have, yet we still complain. Now we look at these defenseless animals who are constantly being hunted. It's horrible and should be stopped.
What you are doing on this site is so great. Thanks for supporting animals that are having a tough time and not getting much support.
Animal poaching is wrong in many ways. I think that this crime should come to an end and let the poor defenseless creatures be free. No one should have to be poached and no animal has to be poached. Governments need to crack down on poachers and have them locked up for the crimes they're committing. Thank you for supporting the animals in the wild. It is good to know there is someone like you that cares.
I believe that animal poaching is very cruel and so wrong. We are killing some of the greatest most interesting creatures that live today. Just poaching to collect tusks or skins is so obscene! The animals did nothing to us, so what did they do to deserve this?
After reading your website, I look at animal poaching from a different perspective. Killing innocent animals just to make money on the black market is an awful and heartless thing. There are not enough people informed of animal poaching and your site explains animal poaching perfectly. Thank you for supporting these innocent animals.
Once I read through your website, I truly received a full understanding of how cruel animal poaching is. Taking the life of these animals to make money off their body parts is inhumane and illegal. I think by making the consequences of animal poaching more sever, we may be able to decrease the amount of animals being killed.
After going through the whole sight I am shocked. I have heard bits and bits of stories of these crimes. Today after hearing these stories together I don't want to buy anything that has to do with animal. I don't eat any animal products my self either.From eggs to meats nothing.The world needs to know that those animal are living creatures. They have lives,families ,and responsibilities.They not only need to live ,but they also deserve to live.Us humans do not have the right to take there lives. Thanks for having a site which helps out the community and the generations to come.
This site is a great source of information for the uneducated public like myself. I learned that animal poaching is wrong for many reasons, but may I point out that it is first and foremost illegal. Poaching is an illegal practice when you trespass on another's property without permission to steal game or hunt the animals down. That's breaking at least four laws right there. Four. You could be arrested for breaking just one, but the poachers go ahead and break at least four. I understand that this is happening everywhere, and most countries do not have sufficient funds to pay for animal protection. But if they don't take more action soon, they won't have any animals left to protect.
They say that people today are getting lazy, but if you ask me, I would beg to differ. Yes they want the money they would get for poaching. It's the easy way. The lazy way. But if people are going out and putting everything on the line for this money, they are just making more work for themselves. We as people should have more integrity than we show day to day. Poachers, (who still fall under the category of people)are willing to take an innocent animal's fur, their tusks/horns, their lives, and lastly their freedom. What if I locked a poacher in a cage and bound their hands and feet and gagged their mouth. Yes, I would be arrested for kidnapping, but do you see my point? (I know there is nothing for you to actually, physically see.) I would get arrested immediately for doing that to another person, but if I poached animals, it would be seemingly easier seeing that so many animals are killed each year due to poaching.
I would like you to look at poaching logically. First, you have to buy equipment, then you have to actually track and hunt the animal, and finally you have to capture or kill it. Let's not forget that if you are poaching a large animal, (i.e. elephants, rhinoceroses, giraffes, tigers, etc.) you still have to carry it back to your village/home/truck. If the animal is alive, good luck getting out of there alive. A live tiger could kill you in an instant if you are not careful enough. It just seems like a lot of unnecessary risk and a lot of extra work to me. People are killing off innocent animals for all the wrong reasons. It's such a shame that they don't see how much their selfishness is impacting the entire environment around them. Truly, I wholeheartedly feel sorry for them that they would stoop so low as to become poachers.
P.S. I don't remember what I was actually going to comment on. That was a mouthful. (Or keyboardful.) Wait... now I remember!
P.P.S. I like Zebras.
After looking at all these pictures on this website, I have fully understood how terrible and inhumane poaching is. I never liked it to begin with, but after looking at all these pictures, I have seen how unfair it is. These wild animals, that have done nothing to you and have never bothered you, are getting shot at, skinned, etc, just to make some money. That is completely disgusting. Don't animals deserve to live, too? What if animals went around killing humans just for one small part of them like an eye or finger? We would absolutely hate that. So why can we do it to them? The worst is with endangered species. They're endangered for a reason! They are supposed to be protected in nature not shot at constantly. We learned in class today about how dodo birds became extinct because everyone was killing them. That is what is going to happened to all the other endangered species if we don't stop poaching once and for all. Poaching is a horrible thing that is ruining animal's lives just so lazy men can make money. There are other ways to make easy money that doesn't involve killing anything/anyone. I fully agree and support this website and think that more people should be exposed to this website to see what is really happening to animals in our world today.
Looking over this website made me sad, amazed, and disturbed all at once. I'm sad and disturbed that these things are happening, but amazed that this website is so keen on getting rid of poaching. The pictures shown of these poor creatures are terrible to look at and depressing to think about. You see elephants without faces, tiger heads with no bodies, and the insides of dead creatures. It's disgusting what humans will do for money and glory. Poaching an animal is downright murder. I never knew how many different types of creatures all over the world suffered from poaching. This website opened up a whole new world of horrors that needs to be fixed immediately. Poaching cannot occur anywhere, or to any creature. I'm so glad this website is here to make more people aware of this issue, and hopefully this will encourage people to do something about it.
After reading your website, I was reminded of the horrible way defenseless animals are treated. It's disturbing that some people are cold hearted enough to kill animals for the need of money. These acts of cruelly are truly disgusting. I completely agree with this website. We should get up and do something about this problem.
I think it's really important to raise awareness about these voiceless animals. As an animal lover myself, I believe it's imperative to stand against such cruel acts. We need to teach the public that animals have rights too. And although they may be defenseless, they still should be given the respect that they deserve. No animal should be poached or murdered only to make money. No animal deserves to be put in circuses or separated from their families. I am so happy that someone is finally bringing to the public's attention about the horrifying truth of animal poaching. Thank you.
Its absolutely horrifying to see that animals are illegally killed and sold just so that they can be a decoration or a sign of wealth. It is great that this website brings the terrible truth to all that are uninformed.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
