I’m a dog and my parents are animal lovers.
(Note: My parents say I look very ‘Lion-esque’ in this photo)
We find the photographs of trophy hunters and poachers with their victims despicable. I often overhear my Mum ranting on about these people and their terrible activity.
It’s well known that many animal species such as elephants, rhinos, tigers, and lions are facing extinction. Whether it’s poachers or trophy hunters – it’s usually illegal to do what they do. Humans aren’t very successful at stopping this tragedy.
FINALLY – a ‘feel good’ story for the animals. Mother Nature is seeking justice and the animals were called into duty in this story. As a four-footed creature – I’m so proud of them…..
According to the news story, an elephant attacked a group of four poachers who entered Kruger Park in South Africa. They were apparently hunting for rhinos. The elephant attacked and killed one of them. The remaining poachers dragged the body away, hoping a passersby would find it.
As the story unfolded, my Mum said that she couldn’t help but think that Karma was at play here. Lions were part of the plan and the upshot seems to be that the three suspects/accomplices have been charged and an inquest will ensue.

This is fabulous news. Right now I’m barking for joy! More four footed creatures will be saved than ever before. And it’s nice knowing that the rest of the animal kingdom is on guard for the future too.
