Rhino Capture in Kruger National Park
Poaching is a very touchy subject to many. Being an animal lover myself I couldn’t imagine enduring that kind of pain on an innocent animal just to make a large sum of money. It is not ethical and although many would love for it to end, poaching seems to be a continuous issue. With the creation of Kruger National Park, their intentions were to protect the nation’s fast and dwindling wildlife areas in South Africa. With their intentions only being good at the start of this assignment in 1898, they have managed to make progress with a few mishaps. It seems as if money will really make people do stupid things. Mentioned in the article, two employed staff members poached two rhinos in an area of what is considered to be the best antipoaching unit in South Africa as well.
In a perfect world, being an animal lover myself as I previously mentioned I would love to take all of these endangered animals under my wing and create an area where they were shielded off from all harm here in the world. However, the world we live is no-where near perfect, so that is unfortunately out of the question. All we can do is create more facilities for these animals and have more security to insure the safety of these innocent animals. Possibly even have air security that allowed a clear view of what was going on in the ground below them. At the same time it is just very hard to pull something off like this, especially when such a large area is being watched and poachers are good at what they do because they act so quickly. Hence, why so few get caught. So, for now the hopes for a perfect world is really all we have to end the constant poaching issue.
