A day after hundreds of kilograms of zebra and wildebeest meat were seized, Kenyan wildlife authorities intensified an attack on poaching and illegal game meat trade, says a report in The Mercury.
The state-run Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) said its rangers and the country's police force had boosted efforts in an effort to halt poaching and clandestine trade. The agency said the trade threatened the country's wildlife, which has been severely decimated by poaching and by a searing drought.
