THE FACES OF EVIL....THE BLOOD OF the innocent is on their hands. The HAWKS have released the names of the two Taiwanese and one Chinese suspect who were arrested in yesterday's rhino horn bust in Johannesburg. Mpumalanga HAWKS spokesperson, Captain Lucy Sekgotodi, identified the suspects as Yu Chi Huang, male, Chen Shui Hu, male, and Ping Wu, female. They face charges of dealing in rhino horn. Asian crime syndicates are responsible for the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of African elephants and rhinos. Their case was postponed to 22nd August 2019 for an interpreter. The suspects were remanded in custody. On Thursday the 15th August 2019, two rhino horns unconfirmed value and two vehicles were seized valued at R700 000 during the operation. Three premises were search and three (one Chinese and two Taiwan Nationals aged between 45 and 53 were arrested. During the search cash was also recovered from the premises an amount of R 70 500. Also seized were two digital scales, a bandsaw, and a.22 pistol w/silencer and ammunition. According to a HAWKS statement, it is believed that the arrested suspects are the masterminds behind a rhino horn syndicate. This came after the conclusion of a year-long investigation by the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, Middelburg, Mpumalanga who successfully infiltrated a notorious chinese syndicates trafficking rhino horns within South Africa to the South East Asian countries. Captain Sekgotodi said "several transactions were conducted over a period of a year with this Chinese syndicate that have embedded their illicit rhino horn trafficking operation in South Africa's Gauteng Province. #VETPAW #veterans #counterpoaching #antipoaching #forcefornature #elephants #elephant #poaching #poachers #rhino #rhinos #teamvetpaw #blackrhino #endangeredspecies #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #wildlifecrime

A RARE SIGHTING INDEED! The Caracal is a mostly nocturnal, secretive, solitary and incredibly aggressive cat. It resembles a cross between a leopard and a lynx. These guys are proficient hunters and will eat anything from small birds right up to small antelope.....we have only seen them a handful of times.

As @sofletehq is our partner for the @marinecorpsmarathon, we will be giving you workouts straight from the bush! Instructor is the insanely fit Harry Walker: So, the reasons why I did this session is to stay well balanced for the operational demands of being in the bush / if I have to react to a dangerous situation. I like to be able to move weight around but also know I can run for long periods of time with weight on my back and have good endurance that could sustain me if I had to follow up on poachers tracks / assist law enforcement etc. It's my personal philosophy to stay fit because I view it as my responsibility in case some one near me gets hurt / needs help, that I can physically react to the situation and not let my physical fitness be the reason someone gets hurt / killed. Warm Up 2 sets of: 5 Quadruped T-Spine Rotations (per side) 5 Cossack Squats (per side) 5 Inch Worms +1 set of 25 ft high knees 25 ft butt kicks Ruck Work 3.4 Miles with a 52 lb Ruck when finished did as many rounds in 15 minutes of 50 ruck step ups to a 12" tire Cool down #VETPAW #veterans #counterpoaching #antipoaching #forcefornature #elephants #elephant #poaching #poachers #rhino #rhinos #teamvetpaw #fitness #marinecorpsmarathon #fit #strength #stamina

Elephants are not seasonal breeders. Generally, they produce one calf every 3 to 4 years. They are pregnant for just under two years. At birth, calves weigh about 100 kg (220 pounds) and depend on their mother's milk for about 18 months. . .

We believe that if we are going to win this war, everyone needs to be properly equipped. We therefore do workshops and courses, transferring the vast knowledge our veterans have attained within the most elite military units in the world, to give our ranger counterparts the tools needed to successfully and efficiently manipulate and navigate their operating environment. This is achieved by using a systematic approach to observation, assessment, critical thinking, superior decision-making, and rapid predictive and proactive analysis. We do this training for free as many reserves are cash strapped - but the rangers need to be trained and we gladly do it #VETPAW #veterans #usarmy #usmc #instagood #wildlifecrime #rhino #rhinohorn #rhinos #counterpoaching #antipoaching #wildlife #poaching #training

We often get the question, as we have had the privilege of interacting with them on many occasions, what are baby rhino like? Well, the answer is simple....they are like adorable, giant hairless, puppies. Always looking for love, food or a game to play and be in the safety of their mothers' reach. This little one will grow to be 2 tons one day - that is if we can keep him safe along the way - which we intend to do. .

Fun fact for a Friday - An adult white rhino can produce as much as 50 pounds of dung per day! That’s a lotta poop! It's the result of rhinos having to consume large amounts of plant material to obtain proper nutrition.

Ear notching is a way of identifying each individual animal. A small triangle of skin is removed from the rhinos ears and depending on where the notch is removed from it has a corresponding numerical value. So each animal is given a numerical “name”. The skin that is removed is also used for genetic analysis in order to monitor breeding. #VETPAW #veterans #counterpoaching #antipoaching #forcefornature #elephants #elephant #poaching #poachers #rhino #rhinos #teamvetpaw

It's the batchelor life for me..... White rhinos are sedentary, semi-social and territorial. Adult bulls like "Rock" are basically solitary and associate only with females decide they want to mate. Stable groups (commonly known as ‘crashes’) of up to six animals can be found (although this is sadly a rarer sight these days, due to poaching), while larger groups are the result of temporary aggregations, due to availability of food and water.

Did you know? Sable live in groups consisting of herds of females with their young, male bachelor groups and solitary dominant males. Age determines rank in the hierarchy. The Sable is a rotund, barrel chested antelope with a short neck and a long face. It resembles the larger roan antelope, to which it is closely related. Among its distinctive features are its long horns, some 40 to 65 inches long. The ringed horns rise vertically, then sweep backwards in a pronounced curve. They are found in both sexes, but the male's horns are slightly larger and heavier than the female's.

Females rule the roost in rhino family dynamics and the males have to work extra hard to woo their crush, therefore, a herd (known as a crash) is really rather small consisting one or two females and their offspring. Males many times are chased off by the females unless she wants to mate. Pretty much like us humans.

Kudu are highly alert and notoriously hard to approach.

LETS HELP!! @benswildlife Hi all.. I’m crowdfunding to try to cover the expenses of an upcoming trip to the Democratic Republic of the Congo where I will be documenting a gorilla and community project, raising awareness about poaching in the area, and tell the stories of the dedicated rangers who risk their lives day in and day out in one of the most dangerous environments on the planet. I’d really appreciate any support that anyone could contribute towards the expedition.

Rhino moms are probably one of the most protective mothers in the wild. There is nothing she wouldn't do to protect her little one.

From @hjdwalker. He and @callanhartman responded to a call about a snared Nyala Bull on his property. The snare had obviously been set by a poacher and was meant to kill it . • The call went out to @joelalves15 to come and dart the Nyala with M99 (tranquilizer for animals but deadly to humans) . • He gave us a quick lesson on Nyala Judo and how to take them down but as you can see I needed his expertise to show me how it’s done . • Great alternative rather than having to shoot the Nyala, which would have been the other option so it didn’t suffer. Reasoning being the snare eventually would have become tighter and tighter and disrupted quality of life. • #NyalaJudo #NyalaBull #VETPAW #AntiPoaching #StrongLikeBull

Mother nature is an absolute genius. Think all giraffe are the same? Nope - giraffe's spot pattern is similar to one of our fingerprints. It's a unique identifier for each animal, helping other giraffes recognize who is in their family groups. The complex markings can help animals evade predators, regulate their temperature, or recognize family or individuals, all of which can affect their ability to survive and reproduce.
