Good. That skin will bring me much money.

Poachers are evildoers who hunt immorally, often after prey that is illegal. There are many forms of poaching: they could be hunting an endangered species, capturing an endangered species for the zoo and pet trades, they could be hunting on land where animals are protected, or they could be hunting animals that are legal to hunt, but they do it the wrong way. Many of them tend to be illegal fishermen, farmers, and lumberjacks as well.
