Kenya mulls tougher punishment for wildlife crimes

Those who engage in the illegal hunting of animals get off too easy.
… And that’s got to change, according to one Kenyan official
Director of Kenya’ s Public Prosecutions, Keriako Tobiko, said wildlife crimes in his country should be classified as “serious” rather than “petty.”
The suggestion comes following the recent killings of two lions in Zimbabwe by two Americans.
In Kenya, wildlife crimes a reached a peak in 2013.
But existing laws in the country fail to curb hunting crimes effectively.
