      They stripped their own country bare and now they've infiltrated every other continent to do the same there as well! And most of the stripping is done in the name of their tiny little dicks!

    I wonder if SANDF is capable of defending our country. They can’t even protect our wild life ?

    The most important thing for South African's to do here is to be vigilant. This crew was busted because of the vigilance of one good person that took the time to spend that one rand to make that phone call. If all good people just committed themselves to take that small moment, that tiny bit of effort to be involved, it will not be long and we will have this wildlife poaching problem under control. The problem becomes bigger when we all rely on others to make the commitment, while the rest walk by believing that it is not their problem. South Africa is being raided top to bottom by both foreign and local syndicates working and operating together. They are organized, efficient and in most cases militarized. These syndicates have also become politicized and have embedded themselves within our government and law enforcement. It is time that good people to counter this with every opportunity that presents itself. Hats off to the guy that took the time to inform the right people in this case, apparently he did not phone the cops first, but Aquila Game Reserve. Very clever, he knew that they have the clout and the knowledge to tackle this syndicate. Let us all be wiser as we become more vigilant and think to do the same, most importantly though, when taking action do not endanger yourself, family and friends. Do not personally rush into the situation rather observe, gather information and inform the proper authorities. Make notes and keep the contact records. Be organized.
