Kenya Considers Introducing The Death Penalty For Poachers



For years, Kenya has been fighting the scourge of poaching. Following multiple attempts which have been largely unsuccessful, such as in 2016, when more than 100 tons of ivory were burned symbolically, or several months later, when more than 5,000 firearms were set on fire to raise awareness among the population, or more recently, when dogs were used in the savanna to flush out crooks, the country has decided to adopt this draconian measure.

The law on the preservation of fauna and flora, introduced in 2013, allowed significant improvements to take place between 2016 and 2017, with the number of animals to fall victim to poaching practically halved.
