The latest issue of National Geographic has an article on the poisoning of lions in Kenya. Since Kenya doesn’t allow hunting, predators have no monetary value and local tribes are not tolerating their livestock being killed. The poison kills any other scavenger too. Hmm, an I Told You So memo should be sent.

Kenya is a disaster. Elephant being poached out of existence, lion and everything else consuming the poison dead. All while the antis rejoice in all the good they’ve accomplished there (sarcasm implied). African wildlife cannot exist without sustainable use conservation which means quota based hunting.

One of the really disastrous effects of these practices is it kills vultures and other scavenging birds. Some are becoming endangered.

Anti-hunting groups have said, time and time again in interviews, that they would rather see animals extinct than have hunters hunt them. I doubt that they care that this is happening, as long as they won the "stop hunting" battle.
