this has been circulated on ele news see http://www.thestanda...-detection.html

in zimbabwe poachers are going for rhinos especially and elephants for high priced horns and tusks, extinction is considered possible

private conservancies are being hard hit.

they take what they want and leave the dead body behind, this attracts vultures very noticeable to rangers meaning that poachers are more likely to be caught

what to do ? pour DDT over the dead body so the vultures will die and rangers won't be alerted to poached rhinos and elephants.

Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.
