June Cat Fancy Article Suggests Possible Link Between Animal Trafficking and Terrorism
IRVINE, Calif., April 24 /PRNewswire/ — A June Cat Fancy article, to hit newsstands on April 29, 2008, suggests a possible link between animal trafficking groups and terrorism. The article titled "Poaching’s Criminal Element" outlines the intricate illicit underground activities of animal trafficking groups in many parts of the world, including the United States, and how these affect species population and Earth’s ecologic balance. Surprisingly, the article also describes a clear and direct link to organized crime groups with possible ties to terrorism.
Focusing mostly in the trafficking of felines, the article highlights important worldwide animal issues such as the extinction of tigers in Asia, because of human killings. The piece cites astonishing numbers when describing the reductions of tiger population. It also explains how many of the conservation organizations take different approaches to capture poachers (animal traffickers) and organized criminal groups, from plain investigative work to extensive educational efforts.
This insightful editorial piece is authored by Brad Kollus, an award winning freelance writer specializing in the human-feline bond and Susan Logan, editor of Cat Fancy and CatChannel.com.
