    The poacher had a gun,does one expect the security guardto walk up to the poacher and request him humbly to surrender in his gun and allowed to be arrested?

    Awe, he might as well have allowed the poacher to shoot him!!!

    What are u having them if they cannot action when required.

    Is it correct to arrest him, He may have done his duty, Best is investigate him without arresting him.

    What nonsense is this? Instead, had the poacher shot and killed this wildlife officer, the poacher would be given a ministerial title or a diplomatic post.

    Law of the jungle, Police how do you stop poaching? By locking this wild life officer your only encouraging the poachers

    WILD ANIMALS IN SIDE THE YALA PARK SHOULD ALSO BE ARRESTED BECAUSE THOSE TWO OTHER PARTIES WOULD NOT HAVE COMMITTED WHAT THEY DID, IF NOT FOR THEIR EXISTENCE .!

    Why he was only doing his duty which has given him the power to protect the wild life.He is authorized to use the gun he is issued to do so. Detaining him is absurd.How do you expect the wildlife officers to do their duty if they are locked up . Our laws as many things in the country are poor and do not afford protection to those who carry out their duties .

    what a law is this then how they are protecting animals, if they use the weapon only poarchers will not do again ,

    What sort of a law is in placed? If not to shoot poachers why did the department issue guns to their officers? Release the poor officers who did his duty...

    no good deed goes unpunished. the wild life officer should be promoted. not punished. i am a long time visitor to yala i have heard guns going off many times. i say we promote this guy and set a example. via DM Android App

    Are they given guns as ornaments or to play with. If they are going to be arrested for using them, why give guns in the first place..

    Day by day our police and judiciary keep setting new records..
