Veterans Empowered to Protect African Wildlife (VEPAW) team member Kinessa Johnson from Yelm, Washington State, has been working with a team of post 9-11 ex US soldiers training local park rangers to catch and detain wildlife killers.
While our Ex-marine Hero avoids harming hunters but under certain circumstances killing a poacher was the only way to preserve an endangered species. As of to date, Kinessa has 27 poachers to date on her "trophy list".
When interviewed about Palmer, the lion killer, Johnson said that it will be a bit more of a challenge.
“As long as he is hiding in the US, there is not much that can be done, but poaching is punishable by death in Zimbabwe which relies heavily on the tourism industry. If we can get an international arrest warrant on his head and get full cooperation by American authorities to extradite him back here, you can trust me that Cecil will be avenged”
Cecil finally has an avenger.
Kinessa is not the only animal guardian in this fight against the poachers in the African Continent. There is currently a mercenary group in South Africa that is actively providing training and equipment to park rangers in the war against poaching. One of the soldiers said he's willing to give his life to protect the animals. True angels indeed. You can watch their video to see them in action.
