Poaching Effect on Vultures

Hey Guys, here is a very interesting and tragic article on how the vulture population is being decimated by poachers. Ironically, vultures pose a serious threat to poachers because they alert game rangers whenever the poachers make a kill by circling and assembling around the carcass. Therefore, poachers are poisoning the animals that they kill so that when the vultures begin feeding on the carcasses, they become poisoned as well. The poachers are trying to kill as many vultures as possible to reduce their risk of being detected by game rangers. This is an atrocity.
