The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

WINDHOEK: Namibia will start pros­e­cut­ing peo­ple who kill wildlife and post pic­tures on so­cial me­dia, En­vi­ron­ment and Tourism Min­is­ter Po­hamba Shifeta said on Wed­nes­day.

Those who kill wildlife, whether with a permit or not, and post pho­tos on so­cial me­dia and boast will face the wrath of the law once the Pro­tected Ar­eas and Wildlife Man­age­ment Bill passes into law.

This comes af­ter a video went vi­ral in the coun­try where a group of peo­ple shot a kudu and started throw­ing stones at it to kill it.
