Poacher Pete

Wildlife Poacher, POACHER PETE has been illegally hunting wild animals all his life. Once he hunts, kills or captures these animals, he teams up with Trader Trey where they both make a good buck on the illegal game within the international market.

There is nothing Poacher Pete wouldn’t hunt and remove from the wild to make a buck – even if that means causing the ecosystem to be out of balance or worse yet, causing an animal to go extinct!

Poaching is the illegal taking of wild plants or animals contrary to local and international conservation and wildlife management laws.

Violations of hunting laws and regulations are normally punishable by law and, collectively, such violations are known as poaching.

Traditional Chinese medicine often incorporates ingredients from all parts of plants, the leaf, stem, flower, root, and also ingredients from animals and minerals. The use of parts of endangered species (such as seahorses, rhinoceros horns, binturong and tiger bones and claws) has created controversy and resulted in a black market of poachers who hunt restricted animals. Deep-seated cultural beliefs in the potency of tiger parts are so prevalent across Asia that laws protecting even critically endangered species such as the Sumatran tiger fail to stop the display and sale of these items in open markets, according to a 2008 report from TRAFFIC. Popular “medicinal” tiger parts from poached animals include tiger penis, culturally believed to improve virility, and tiger eyes.
