Pa­trol for poach­ers de­plet­ing wildlife

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - COMMENT -

IN SUP­PORT of Steve Smith’s let­ter in the Week­end Ar­gus of De­cem­ber 4, I and many oth­ers are sick of the sense­less slaugh­ter of our wildlife. One won­ders at the men­tal­ity of the idle peo­ple in power.

On two oc­ca­sions a man was seen walk­ing along Du Toit­skloof Pass with a large buck slung over his shoul­ders. The po­lice were in­formed the first time, yet on the sec­ond drive over the pass there was yet an­other.

Why do the po­lice or parks au­thor­i­ties not pa­trol the moun­tain – for what are these men do­ing climb­ing the moun­tain with guns, if not to poach?
