A good example that legalizing trade does not reduce poaching. Poaching of lions has recently been increasing. It has sharply increased this year, and SA announced they allow the sale of hundreds of lion carcasses allegedly to be used for their bones in TCM. The trade is legal, yet poaching isn't reduced but is increasing. Didn't the same thing happen with ivory? Yet people still argue allowing rhino horn trade is the best remedy against rhino poaching...Rhino poaching was on a downward trend. Recently the domestic sale of rhino horn within SA was allowed, we'll see what happens with the future trend of rhino poaching. But this news from lions isn't promising. http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/poachers-target-lions-in-limpopo-20170825
