If it doesn't include killing endangered animals I don't have too much of a problem with that.

Early indications are incredibly promising: a pilot project in a protected wildlife area managed to reduced poaching there by 96 percent.

A pilot program could cause poachers to move to undroned areas. I expect the reduction to be less when they watch everywhere.

Paul Udoto, spokesman for the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), said: "Use of drones has shown that we can prevent poaching and arrest many poachers on their tracks.

Arrest? I was thinking more along the lines of "kill." Won't somebody think of the carrion-eaters?

For a short while I seriously considered joining an anti-poaching unit in Africa after my time in the Army is up. That really looks like it would be a cool and rewarding job, though the idea of moving to Africa for any period of time will probably keep me from really pursuing it.

I was at Greenwise today and during my time through the aisles I kept seeing this same gal, again and again, who would each time make eye contact with me in what can only be said a "come hither" sort of way. She was a full-on hot as fark MILF...her hotness exacerbated by the fact that for as hot as she was it was clear she was also a good number of years older. The first time she batted eyes at me was in the produce area and I figured she was just being friendly. Then it happened again in the dairy aisle. And again in the paper products aisle. When I got to the check-out lane I saw that she wasn't far behind me. Several lanes were open with no customers in line---yet she lined up behind me rather than going to an open lane. And, indeed, even though I tried to not catch her glance (I really did, not lying about this)---well, I did risk a glance and wouldn't you know it her eyes were immediately fixated into mine a'la a laser beam. I shiat you not. Her glance was farking "hypnotic"...it was as though when she caught your glance she was at the same time putting thoughts into your mind a'la some sort of ESP transference.  Truly, it was weird and uncanny (yet not at all unpleasant, of course).

Know a BETTER way to reduce poaching?  Let the people raise, slaughter, and sell the animals.  Give them a financial incentive to have them around and protect the resource, and hey you can even tax it if that's your thing, instead of spending money on RC planes.

The animals getting poached aren't really known for the ability to be raised domestically in a cost-efficient or practical manner. Do you know how much an elephant eats a day?

SquiggsIN: I don't love the idea of extra judicial execution via drone but, in poachers case i'd make exceptions, as frequently as possible.  I will never understand the mindset of people who can't look into the future and want the people then to be able to enjoy what we enjoy now.


I'm guessing the locals in Buttworm, Kenya, are already not enjoying what "we" enjoy now. Their priorities are shaped by circumstances "we" can hardly imagine.
