I just saw this story and I’m fucking goddamned speechless. I don’t have the wherewithal to write anything but profane curse words right now, so I’ll just embed a link to the Yahoo story.
But there is this gem of a quote:
On Monday, environment, Water and Climate Minister Oppah Muchinguri blamed a ban on Zimbabwean elephant sport hunting by the United States for increased poaching.
“All this poaching is because of American policies, they are banning sport hunting. An elephant would cost $120,000 in sport hunting but a tourist pays only $10 to view the same elephant,” she said, adding money from sport hunting is crucial in conservation efforts.
Jesus fucking Christ!
Suffice it to say: Fuck poachers! Kill them, like they do to elephants, rhinos, tigers, bears, etc. No mercy!
