Kenya wildlife rangers kill poacher during shootout in national park – Africa & Middle East – International Herald Tribune

A 60-year-old poacher who has been pursued by authorities for over 20 years finally ran out of luck. He was killed in a shootout with rangers in Kenya.

The poaching of elephants and rhinos has made hash of conservation plans for these species. Stopping poachers, as demonstrated by the long career of the deceased, is hard work.

Myself, I think we should be promoting our own meme: It isn’t some animal byproduct that offers all the erotic and health benefits you are thinking about; no, what you want is poacher liver. An amusing variant would be “poacher testicles”.
