Brutal poachers lay out traps and snares in the Tanzanian bush. The unfortunate lion that is caught in the trap will suffer an agonizing death. The picture below speaks volumes.
We can not stop such scenes as long as we sit back on our chairs and watch things like this to happen. Why isn’t any government interested in wildlife protection – seriously, because they won’t gain from it – except trouble.
Governments have different agendas, wild life protection is not one of them.
Let us write to our political leaders to mention our concerns and I am sure some body will hear it and take some action – sometime hopefully soon.
I apologize for the gravity of this picture, but this is the only way to make people understand that there is a serious problem.
Cobras move silently along the canal waterways that girdle rice paddies in South Eastern Asia. They have few enemies to fear. Their favorite prey are serpents of smaller species. Paddy rice farmers are amongst their feared enemies.
TheKing Cobra moved swiftly, sensing danger. 7 p.m. in the paddies, people still in the fields.It was early for her, moving at this time brings its risk. Hunger, the prime reason, looking for its smaller relatives.
When the eyes of the local inhabitants locate her, the drama has begun.Within a flash of a second, its head erect, the neck inflated, threatening with a hissing sound she indicates her aggressiveness and danger.
For a Cobra that is hungry is also dangerous, her poison sac full with deadly venom. The potency of a ‘ King ‘s’ bite can take out 7000 rabbits at one go. Not to be taken as a joke if your are the unlucky victim that gets bitten.
Within seconds the locals have surrounded her, sticks and machetes ready.
Her fate is sealed, 2.7 meters of tempting snake flesh is a treat no one will miss in these parts of the world.
