    Umm, when you say infrasonic, that's got to be below 20 Hz, so I suppose you mean 15 Hz rather than 15 KHz.

    not only are poachers monstrous scumbags they are stupid: they killed the breeding okapis... which means there won't be okapi for them to hunt and eat if the animal goes extinct.

    Some times it’s best to cull the local human populations. Keeping human population densities low is actually an important strategy for limiting the prevalence of several tropical diseases in sub Saharan Africa.

    I kind of lost focus after the story about the poachers killing 6 people and every animal on the reserve. These people need to die. And I dont want to hear its not their fault, they have to feed their family. If you are bold enough and well armed and trained enough to invade armed encampments to KILL people and slaughter animals simply to send a message you are a criminal gang. Not a hungry group of friendly natives just trying to feed your children.

    You said “infrasonic” then said 15 kilohertz. Humans have an average hearing range of 20 Hertz to 20,000 hertz (20 kilohertz), so infrasonic would be anything below that limit. There was even a super high frequency played.
