I think that the death penalty should be put into action for poaching due to the enormous amount of loss imposing on the animal kingdom. Many people would kill rhinos for it's horns, or kill an elephant for it's ivory, but those people are butt holes, considering that they have driven many animals to extinction, including The Amur Leopard, which it's numbers are possibly as low as sixty, yet poachers still hunt them down, and that is worth the death penalty

Hi, I don't think poachers should get the death penalty for killing animals in extinction.

Your main argument seems to be that poaching is awful because it drives animals to extinction. I don't disagree with you on that matter.
However, since extinction is your main concern, you should know that the main cause of animal extinction is climate change. Climate change disrupts the usual cycle of animal and reduces the birth rate of some migratory birds. Climate change is, according to scientists, going to bring the 6th mass extinction event.

Since you ask for the death penalty against poachers, what penalty should everyone get from polluting the planet?
