Poaching is a slang word used for the Illegal killing of wildlife. There’s a great deal of poaching happening around the world, in the USA and right here in WI’s back yard. It takes a toll on our wildlife populations even bringing them to the brink of extinction.

Wardens, or better known as game wardens are on the front lines against illegally killing of wildlife. A game warden is an employee who has the role of protecting wildlife.
