Poaching is a deadly crime against wildlife. Wildlife officials say that legal hunters kill tens of millions of animals every year. For each of those animals, another is killed illegally, perhaps on closed land or out of season, leaving orphaned young to starve. Few poachers are caught or punished.

Poachers may also kill endangered species or use illegal weapons. Some poachers just love killing animals, or want a trophy.

For many, profit is the motive. Bear gall bladders get top dollar for Chinese herbal remedies, and big-horned sheep antlers can fetch $20,000 on the black market.

Let's stop this war on wildlife.

The Humane Society of the United States is a proud associate member of the International Association of Natural Resources Crimestoppers.
