I never considered adding poachers to my diet. Can you describe the taste?

I am a dyed and true animal lover and I hate the fact that animals are being slaughtered for ivory and such. BUT ..... most of the poachers are doing so out of necessity. The answer is not so simple.

China is involved in joint massive infastructure development projects in Africa to get their economies going. As far as I am aware they do not sponsor terrorist organizations there or anywhere to my knowledge. They also are bringing the modern age to villages. Africa sees China as a friend. China will benefit as the Africans become more of a consumer society.

I saw in a discussion on a hunting site that the final value of a rihno horn 20# might be quarter mil USD. The alleged poacher wouldn't get much of that at his end of the supply chain.

He wouldn't need to. Couple of hundred USD's is several thousand in the local coin.

Most of us are not all that happy about going in to be sliced and diced. It is the alternative we like less. A lot of us have survived more years than not with modern medicine.

If you already feel you have more energy than before the operation. Give it some time. You probably will feel a lot more improvement yet. Try to get adequate rest as it helps the healing process.
