KILL KILL KILL those damn bastards...(the poachers that is)(&..aren't gals with big suns something!)
....Our friend Hal has been away for some months...visiting some of those vacation hot spots that we keep reading about all the time.
Chris sent me an interesting message that Hal’s next mission should be here.
“One way activists in the United States are supporting an end to poaching by enlisting retired vets to take part in an organization that puts their years of combat training to work overseas.
The non-profit VETPAW (Veterans Empowered To Protect African Wildlife) is focused on protecting African wildlife from illegally being hunted and captured. And a recent addition to that group is Kinessa Johnson, a US Army veteran who served for 4 years in Afghanistan. At the end of March, she and a team arrived in Africa to take on a new mission: According to her, “We’re going over there to do some anti-poaching, kill some bad guys, and do some good.”
“Now that sounds interesting. As conservative as a lot of my views and beliefs may be, I'm dang near Kennedy liberal when it comes to corralling jerk wad poachers and those who traffic in whatever is harvested from the animals.
However, there are a limited number of places on the African Continent, especially the northern two thirds, where I'm "welcomed". (you can guess why!)
The majority of the lower third would find me welcome, but only to a "holding" facility to await someone from the upper two thirds.
Not because I've been a bad boy, but because I was good at what I've done for many years. Let's just call it "professional jealousy" on the part of some dictatorial types.
Of course, I could be lying”
thanks again, Hal.
