Lekker in die moeilikheid

I’ve read somewhere on this forum about the guys selling leopard’s and chameleons in Rustenburg. It didn’t work out well for them.

I also saw that this morning.

Very cool that the cops are stepping up, but I can't but help wonder how serious the punishment is going to be.

Let's hope they raid the same areas frequently for the next few weeks to avoid the guys simply coming back.

And if the animals are hidden in the bush, how do you pin the charges on anyone?

Hopefully they will catch the guys selling Nile crocs as Spectacled Caimans as well!

The police raded petshops in Klerksdorp a few weeks back, to bad that they didnt look behind closed doors....... My heart nearly stopped when I saw, what I saw. I will say no more
