 Apart  from  PETA,  any  form  of  wild  animal  hunting  is  punishable  by  law.  Some  these  animals  are  rare  which  invokes  severe  punishment  under  Indian  Law.  
 
 Looks  like  the  forest  officer  of  Pondi  is  sleeping;  need  to  wake  up  and  start  action.  Shocked

 i  also  do  not  like  this  or  other  forms  of  illegal  exploitation  of  nature...
 i  do  not  know  the  situation  of  the  poachers,  but  could  imagine  these  are  poor  guys  who  have  to  feed  their  families...it  is  very  easy  to  condemn  them  without  giving  them  an  alternative

 Amen!  Though  I  cannot  condone  this,  Juanico  is  spot  on.  Majority  of  the  times  these  poachers  are  poor  people  trying  to  make  ends  meet,  and  not  even  aware  of  any  wrong  doing  on  their  part.  They  would  have  been  doing  this  generation  to  generation  with  no  one  to  educate  them.

 Iam  not  at  all  against  these  people.  Like  nayak  said  they  don't  know  what  they  are  doing.  It  is  our  lazy  govt  and  the  rich  people  who  buy  this  off  for  fancy  meat  who  should  be  sent  to  prison.  If  there  is  no  sale  there  will  be  no  killing.

 Nayak,  Ignorance  of  law  cannot  be  an  excuse  to  commit  crime.  Nor  the  excuse  of  making  ends  meet  be  the  reason  to  let  the  poacher  go  scot  free.  Many  a  times  (  as  reported  in  the  news  media  ),  these  so  called  village  folks/poachers  are  repeat  offenders,  who  have  been  caught  multiple  times,  and  each  time  they  have  given  similar  excuses  ("Did  not  know  the  rules"  ,  "some  one  else  asked  me  to  sell  it  for  them"  etc  etc  ).  
         I  agree  that  there  may  be  genuine  cases  of  ignorance,  but  I  find  it  hard  to  believe  that  most  of  them  are  such  cases.
 Proper  propaganda  and  education  on  these  issues   to  these  tribals  can  even  weed  out  those  few  cases  of  ignorance.
