I agree.....

I have been out in the bush in South Africa and was 6 feet (2 meters) from a huge white rhino - magnificent creature!

Hi
I was surprised at the extradition and obvious effort the Wild life protection services went to.
I was wondering if such measures would be made against an unsuspecting trader in ethnographic weapons.
The chap extradited is a member of a notorious Irish Gipsy/traveler gang specializing in art theft, this I assume prompted the efforts to get him b3hind bars.
Regards
Ken
