In my opinion, animal poaching is a barbaric, unnecessary and cruel way to gain easy money in our modern world. We need to stop this now before it’s too late. Even at a time, when many species are facing extinction, poachers are not stopping at anything. Money, the most desired addicting object that turns even the best people into addicts, threatens animal survival. The numbers of tigers, rhinos and the elephants in India is just the tip of an iceberg. Have you ever gone to a store and seen a beautiful ivory bracelet? I bet you do not know what went into the making of that bracelet? Do you really think that one pretty bracelet is worth the life of an elephant or a rhino? While stopping the poachers needs action at the state level, we can at least decide personally to not engage in the cruelty of poaching by banning products made out of animal skin and other parts. Do think about it…
