lion poaching in africa

在東非的林波波國家公園,偷獵者利用含有毒藥的肉殺害大量獅子,取去牠們的頭、掌及骨。要捕捉獅子並不難,只要有食物就很容易吸引到牠們,護林員靠追蹤獅子的行蹤根本難以趕得及阻止牠們遇害。犀牛的消失令偷獵者把目標轉移到獅子上,估計數年後獅子就會這個國家公園內消失。

In the Limpopo national park of eastern African, poachers are killing many lions with poisoned bushmeat and taking away their heads, paws and bones for trading. It’s easy to attract and kill lions with just poisoned bushmeat, but it is a lot harder for the rangers to track down the lions and stop the poachers. With the disappearance of the rhino, the poachers changed their target to the lions; the lions are being killed so fast they wouldn’t be gone in this national park in just a few years time.
