Law:The Be Kind to Animals and Other Living Things Act
The Be Kind to Animals and Other Living Things Act
In the last 20 yrs, the rhino count in Asia and Africa has declined from @100,000 to less than 10,000. Asia's tigers have been even more decimated: from @100,000 to @5,000 today. It's almost a foregone conclusion that both species will disappear from the wild this decade. This massacre is due almost exclusively to illegal poaching, in which various parts of these animals are used for "traditional" medicines, sex enhancers, jewelry, etc. Despite years of prodding my other nations, China and Taiwan ignore the warnings and continue to consume animal parts for those grisly purposes, and answer critics with indifference, hollow promises and subterfuge. Talossa says ENOUGH! Talossa hereby roundly and firmly condemns these hideous practices perpetrated by poachers and their protectors, and hereby calls upon the world's nations to take whatever measures necssary to save these disappearing animals. Ful trad sanctions are hereby imposed upon China and Taiwan.
