Poaching on the rise Witchdoctor orders lion’s teeth. Field littered with elephant carcasses

The Arusha Times "Poaching cases are on the increase in Loliondo game controlled area in contrast to limited number of game rangers in the vicinity.

The Ngorongoro District Wildlife Officer Betekire Rubunga said there are just four game rangers including him, to patrol the rather large game controlled area, “We also have only one vehicle, a single-cabin Land-Rover 110 Tdi, which had resumed operation last week after being grounded for repairs since December 2008,” said Rubunga."
