Oh, I have to write, not just think it.

As I was thinking, this is one of my favorite bugs cartoons!

Off to look up hare coursing and why it might be something that a gang would want to get in to.

Sorry, but this whole thing reeks of bullshiat to me. Gangs are going to urban parks and the countryside and killing rabbits, deer, foxes and the occasional badger with pesticides and making £10,000 a month doing it? The police have no statics on this, but this Wildlife Preservation  Charity magically has reliable information?

"Poaching, poisoning and the theft of animals may sound like activities from Britain's past, but modern gangs are muscling in on the act.
A new report claims the scale of the problem is being hidden and that gangs are making large sums of money from illegal activities such as hare-coursing, raking in up to £10,000 a month in one case, while poaching of fish and deer is common and as likely to happen in urban parks as in the countryside."

You don't think maybe there's a whole-lotta-fund-raising-going-on, do you? Hmmmmm

"The report has been endorsed by the charity's celebrity backers - actor and writer Stephen Fry, Deborah Meaden of Dragons' Den and zoologist Charlotte Uhlenbroek - who all signed an open letter that called poachers in the UK just as morally reprehensible as people who shoot endangered animals abroad."

When hare coursing is outlawed, only outlaws will be able to course hares!

"Poaching on the King's lands? The sheriff shall deal with you!"

"Let him come! I am a vicious course-hare! I will run him through and sick the hounds after him!"

Wait how the fark does a large, live carp bring in 12,000 pounds? We used to catch those by hand as kids to see who could get the biggest one. I'd bring in 2 or 3 in an afternoon.

My thoughts exactly. Every Christmas, the streets of Prague run red with the blood of a million carp kept in bathtubs. It's not like they are hard to find, they are crappy freshwater fish.

1) Put a bounty on dried, ground penis of retards who believe in mystical bullshiat about eating tiger penis and rhino horns and shiat.
2) The market works everything out.

The stupidity of human beings never ceases to amaze me. Paying for ground up rhino horn so you witch doctor can cure your flaccid little dick? Good lord, morons.

Now that I think of it, I do remember Stephen mention being with some sort of similar charity in a recent QI episode.

I still share the same amount of skepticism though. This has a Daily Mailish stink all over it.

There is no doubt in my mind that this is being driven by Chinese men with fat wallets and limp dicks.  It always is, when poaching is involved.

Maybe we should start flooding the market with powdered Viagra labeled as powdered unicorn penis or whatever it is they think is going to magically endow them like John Holmes.
