Bush meat hunting threatens antelope survival

In a heart-wrenching revelation, the once-thriving population of various antelope species in the Tsavo Conservancy has experienced a shocking decline of 50 per cent in just half a decade. The wilderness, which once served as a safe haven for these creatures, is now witnessing a tragic consequence of bush meat hunting. As the hungry shadows of poverty loom large over the local communities, the race to feed their families has inadvertently become a threat to the very existence of these endangered species.

            Decrease in 50% is a shocking truth,this should be discouraged coz when they are done with antelopes they will move to any other "edible"animal which is very wrong.
