Killing Poachers…Legal!

Wow!  I guess there are some concerns about justice.  But since there are so few tigers left, the desperate measures may be called for.  I’m OK with it.

“A state in India has a novel idea of how to protect endangered tigers from poachers: Kill the poachers! The Western Indian state of Maharashtra now allows forest guards to shoot poachers on sight. They will also send more rangers into forests and offer covert payments to informers in attempts to curb the killings. India is home to nearly half of the world’s tiger population, and poaching remains a serious problem there: 14 tigers have been killed this year, more than all of 2011, with eight dying in Maharashtra.”
