Darcy L Ogada, The Poisoning of Africa’s Vultures; The circling scavengers are the poachers’ worst enemy. New York Times, Aug 28, 2014 (op-ed)
www.nytimes.com/2014/08/28/opini ... ricas-vultures.html
("vultures help law enforcement officers zero in on poachers. With their keen eyesight and distinctive vantage point, vultures can locate an elephant carcass within 30 minutes of the animal’s death. It can take 45 to 70 minutes for the most skilled poachers to hack off two elephant tusks, and when vultures gather overhead rangers can get that much closer to apprehending the perpetrators. By poisoning a carcass and killing vultures en masse, poachers are trying to ensure that next time around there will be fewer of them to contend with")

My comment:
(a) The article is dispatched from Nairobi, Kenya. Africa, that is.
(b) There is no need to read the rest.
