This piece on the website Fight for Rhinos looks at the shoot-to-kill policy toward poachers that some African countries have adopted in a desperate attempt to reduce rampant poaching of rhinos and elephants. While it is controversial, it has also proven highly effective. The poll at the bottom of the piece shows 91.74% of voters agree with it. What do you think?

Absolutely the most effective policy is to show poachers no mercy. It worked in Tanzania before some corrupt officials banned it. It works beautifully in Botswana.
Kill poachers on sight. And use A10 Warthog close ground support aircraft. The poachers are heavily armed.
