Also, 'poaching' is by definition illegal hunting; so 'poaching' legally is a contradiction.

You do know that there is a huge black market in the Pacific and Asia for the parts of some endangered species, right? Tigers and rhinos get poached because there is a demand created by the superstitious beliefs that ground up tiger bones or rhino horns can cure cancer, arthritis, male impotence, the common cold, etc. The people who poach these creatures do so for money, for their own best interest. Their intent is to make a living, unfortunately their jobs can and do push other animals to extinction; but I imagine their express intent is not the total eradication of that species.

Much like with rape, gun violence, and violent crimes in general; I imagine the root of the problem is lack of education, wealth inequality, and lack of opportunity. If the poachers could make as good, if not better, a living doing something else that didn't require poaching, how many of them do you think would continue to poach? They're not all rich European sport-hunters only interested in the thrill of an illegal hunt... Facepalm

Hold on before I lost track of my original point, name an animal that is savage?

Barracudas, sharks of most varieties, bears, seals, jaguars, lions, tigers, leopards, wolves and other wild dogs, chimps, orcas, praying mantises, wasps, puff adders, hippos, meerkats, crocodiles....

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Rapists.

Rapists are the leading cause of rape.

savage -
1. fierce, ferocious, or cruel; untamed: savage beasts.
...
11. to assault and maul by biting, rending, goring, etc.; tear at or mutilate: numerous sheep savaged by dogs.

Are humans tame?

Are humans fierce?

Are humans cruel?

Are humans ferocious?

When a human kills does it ignore all of this? When a human over kills are the definitions not fitting.

Does an animal have to fit all parts of the 1st definition or only the majority?

You see that conjunction "or". It means any one or more of them. Silly seal. Tongue

That's my read. Honey Badger is both fierce and ferocious and fearless to boot. But he ain't cruel 'cause Honey Badger don't give a shit. He's just hungry. He's always hungry. Big Grin

Well humans are fierce, ferocious, and cruel, but are tame because we are a domesticated species.
