    Those omnivores never learn... soon they'll eat all their wildlife except the damn pandas...
    and incineration of seized pangolins is a madness (they're not preserved of course...)

    I don't hate the ones who catch and sell pangolins, as they are poor people who just wish to lead a similar life-stye of city dwellers; I hate the rich ones and officers who eat pangolins, they are the black sheep who drive our pangolins to extinction.

    What's about secretly poisoning the seized dead pangolins with some heat-resistant deadly stuff and sending them off to the market, so the consumers would feel themselves (really) bad?
    Something like this is done with rhino horns but the consequences are not lethal.
