The cops spent 8 months bringing these poachers to justice. The first guy plead guilty and got a fine for just over 1400$. I'm no tree hugger, but I do see something wrong with this. 9 others are facing trial.
Even IF you keep getting caught I bet you'd still turn a profit. With fines like that its almost a viable business.
Our tax dollars are being spent to bring these clowns to justice, how about recovering the costs from the guilty.
Just a thought.
