Poacher to be set free?


Sansar Chand is widely considered to be India's deadliest poacher accounting for the deaths of 250 tigers, 2,000 leopards, 5,000 otters, 20,000 wild cats and 20,000 wild foxes. These numbers aren't just staggering, but still counting as poaching nexi established by Chand continue to operate along Indian forests. Chand had managed to evade the law for years, and was unrepentant when questioned about his crimes, maintaining that poaching is a hereditary profession. His eviction is sure to spell doom for India's remaining tigers.
