There is a petition going round to get the penalties for poaching increased in light of the outrage at the ludicrously light sentences handed down to poachers in the last few days

Yeap, I think everyone is shocked at the moment. This is the original article …starafrica.com/news/kenya-hands-four-chines…

Doff thanks, petitions will be duly signed.

Unfortunately here "some animals are more equal than others"...
